Mothers Day is just around the corner and it’s important to make sure you let your Mother, parent or those you love know how much you mean to them, because they definitely deserve it. If you’re anything like me, you’ll have been thinking about the perfect gift for months but just can’t seem to find something that truly shows how much you care. But fear not, we’re here with some ideas to get your mothers day gifts boxed off, with lots of lovely treats straight from members of the Make CIC community.
So most mums love receiving jewellery as a gift right? But what about the chance to make your own piece! Noctua Jewellery offer a range of magnificent silversmith workshops, from ring making, earrings, bezel setting and more! A great one for mothers and daughter is their sea glass pendant setting workshops.
