Have you ever picked up some LEGO® and wondered whether it could have a life after childhood? If you miss the fun of playing with these bold bricks but want to create something practical, you’ll love the trend for LEGO® jewellery…
LEGO® isn’t just for kids… and it’s not just for building models or creating your own miniature vehicles and cityscapes. Crafters are using these versatile bricks for all sorts of things, and we love the trend for making fun LEGO® jewellery and accessories!
Colourful LEGO® bricks can be used to make a range of different items, including necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, brooches, hair clips and even belt buckles. There’s such a huge selection of bricks available, the only limit is your imagination. So why not have a go at transforming your next creation into a quirky accessory?
See some different examples of LEGO® jewellery and accessories and learn more about them in our video:
To get started, all you need is a box of LEGO® bricks – we recommend a mixed selection so you have plenty of different colours and shapes to play with. Whether you choose to secure your makes with “Kragle” is, of course, up to you! For more complicated projects you may also require some jewellery-making tools, like pliers and wire-cutters, and a selection of jewellery findings.
Instructions for all of the designs shown here and in the video can be found in the new PDF eBook The Unofficial LEGO® Jewellery Book, which can be downloaded from Stitch Craft Create to view instantly. The eBook includes 18 different LEGO® jewellery projects that are so versatile and incredibly easy to make!
