Winter seasonal kits are back! Create a keepsake ornament, chainmaille snowflake & more

The air is cooler, the leaves are turning and that can only mean one thing – the holidays are just around the corner!  It’s time to get busy making your DIY gifts and we have a few kits that might be just perfect for some lucky recipients.  Each of these kits and tutorials can be found in our Projects section and, while they are all are considered “intermediate”, we find that they they are quite a approachable for all levels.

Try one or all of them and make sure to share what you create on our page on Facebook – that is of course, if it won’t ruin anyone’s surprise! *wink*

Holiday Ornament (Christmas Tree)

One of our top-selling kits, this project is the perfect size for a festive pendant, brooch or tree ornament.  We also love using them as special gift tags.  Choose your favorite color anodized aluminum for the “ornaments” or go with Multi Mix (shown left), our favorite look.


Snowflake – NEW! Tutorial

This project was featured on the cover of Step-by-Step Wire Jewelry magazine back in December 2010 and for 2012, we’ve brought it back now will a new Blue Buddha Boutique tutorial to go with it.  These sweet snowflakes look lovely in all one metal but can also be customized with colored rings to compliment your holiday decor.  We think the smaller silver and “medium” base metal kits are so cute as pendants and use the large base metal kits to create tree ornaments and gift decorations.


Wrapped Ornament

Want to give plain glass ball ornaments a new lease on their holiday lives?  Try this tutorial to create a chainmaille wrapping for an everyday Christmas ball ornament.  Customize this piece with color to compliment your tree’s theme or create it out of base metal for a sleek, modern look in silver and gold metallic hues.

Hi, While searching on the web. I found the directions for a wreath made out of chainmaille. The problem is, I have having trouble figuring out the ring sizes I need, so I can buy the rings from Blue Budda. Do you have a chart show how you ring sizes match up to how other companies give their ring sizes?

Love the Christmas tree kit. To obtain the colors as seen, do I have to order additional colors or does the kit come with varied colors??

I love that you are selling kits for these pieces! One question I have that I don’t see on the description page for the Snowflakes kit is how many medium snowflakes does the kit provide for – is it just one?
