Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year… except for your bank account! It can be hard trying to find the perfect present for 20 different people. We believe that making your presents is a fantastic way to have an affordable and personalised gift.

Pearl Earrings

Pearl Earrings

Pearls are known for being timeless, so you can be sure that these will get years of use. This earring design is so simple to make, anyone could do it! This piece shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes to complete. You just need the right parts and tools.


We’ve used gold plated head pins, gold plated ear wire hoops (in-store only), fresh water pearls, slim line round nose pliers and side cutters.

Making Pearl Earrings

The only work required for this piece is in forming the head pin into a loop to secure the pearl on the earring. Once this is done, slip the loop into the opening of the ear wire. If you’re new to it, watch this tutorial. And… that’s it! You now have beautiful pearl earrings!


Small Box

We also offer a wide variety of packaging that is perfect for Christmas gifts!

Large Box

Our card fold-up boxes are a more affordable option, yet offer a classy design. The card is of high quality and has a slight gloss to it. There is also a sizing range of small, medium and large and a variation in colour options (black, white, blue and gold).

Medium Box

We are wishing you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
