9 Fabulous Handmade Jewellery Gifts for Mother's Day

There's no doubting the importance of your Mum. 

She nurtured you through your childhood years, loved you unconditionally as you navigated the teenage years and helped shape the person you have become today as an adult. 

Now, she's a confidante, an adviser, your biggest fan and your cheerleader. What an amazing woman she is! 

One thing is for sure - no matter how grown up you are, your Mum never stops being your Mum! So this Mother's Day, show her just how much she means to you with a gift that not only comes from your heart, but that was handmade with love.

To help you, I've rounded up some of my most popular jewellery-making projects, which she is sure to love.

Egyptian Perfume Bottle Pendant:
So this is not actually a bottle but it does look like one. This exotic pendant will take you less than an hour to put together.

Rose Cluster Bottle Pendant:
Another bottle pendant that isn't actually a bottle. This tutorial also includes step-by-step instructions for making a snake chain to hang the bottle on. This project will take you a little over an hour.

Ice Crystal Earrings:
Give your Mum some sparkly earrings! If she's not into blue, then make them with her favourite colours!

Fiesta Sunset Earrings:
For the Mum who likes her jewellery to have a more Southwestern influence, make these leather lace earrings in earthy tones. These just make you want to party!

Kashmiri Stretch Bracelet:
This is an easy project for a beginner to tackle. Using exotic beads like these Kashmiri beads is what makes it so special.

Candy Coloured Kumihimo Bracelet:
This basic Kumihimo braid is much simpler than it looks. Once you get the hang of how to do it, you can make the bracelet whilst you're watching TV.

Beaded Leather Kumihimo Bracelet with Sliding Knot:
For something just a little more challenging than the basic Kumihimo braid, add some beads to the braid and then finish the bracelet with an adjustable sliding knot. Your Mum will love that she can do this bracelet up on her own!

Marbled and Textured Resin Bracelet:
You'll need a bit more time to complete this resin bracelet, but the time spent will be well worth it! Your Mum will love the marbled and the textured pieces in the shiny silver settings. It will become one of her favourite pieces in no time!

And if after all those ideas, you really don't have the time to make a piece of jewellery for your Mum, then why not shout her an online resin class where she can learn how to make one of these gorgeous, colourful resin bangles for herself. I promise, you will be her FAVOURITE CHILD! 

These bangles have magnetic closures that are encrusted with sparkly crystals and they can be made in whatever length she wants. So no matter whether your Mum has a bigger wrist, a smaller wrist or an average-sized wrist, she can make a bangle that fits her perfectly. Stack of 4 resin bangles in shades of green, embellished with crystals and silver beads, finished with a sparkly magnetic clasp.

I hope these ideas help you find the perfect handmade gift for your Mum... the one that shows her just how much she means to you. đź’–
