At a recent Mommy Matters networking breakfast I attended I was fortunate to win a voucher for a jewelery making workshop/ party with Rouxmia from Romeo Foxtrot jewellery designs.
I’ve seen Rouxmia’s gorgeous jewelery designs around and was super excited to hear that this was a new venture for her – hosting jewelery making parties for girls of all ages.
I was even more excited to find out I would be hosting the very first party – and as luck would have it I have this blog which is the perfect platform to share about my experience and give Rouxmia a bit of promotion plus a great platform to tell all the moms reading Becoming you who might be struggling to come up with a unique party idea for their daughters. The best of all worlds really!!
So last Friday afternoon I got together with a few of my favourite girls – my 4 year old daughter and 2 nieces aged 10 and 13. As luck would have it they were staying with granny for a few days and she was quite happy for me to come along and keep them entertained for a few hours so Rouxmia arrived at her house laden with boxes of charms, strings of leather and all the other essentials needed for a creative afternoon…
Now jewelery has a way of grabbing the attention of girls of all ages. From the moment she unpacked, Rouxmia had the attention of a pre-schooler, pre-teen, teen, mom and gran! The perfect activity to unite all generations in the room!
A few days prior to the party Rouxmia had sent me an email with all the options and I chose to make a really fun charm bracelet. This meant we all had to select our favourite colour suede and then 10 charms of our own choosing – there was hundreds to choose from and this took quite some time – some finding it harder than others to settle on their selection!
Then it was time for step-by-step instructions and hands-on assistance which Rouxmia was really happy to offer when we got stuck! Slowly but surely our creation started coming together and eventually we completed our very own charm bracelet. What a wonderful feeling. I love being creative and I could see that the girls all really enjoyed the process and the satisfaction of Instagraming a pic of their very own hand-made jewelery!
Such a great way for girls of all ages to enjoy time together. I think this would make a great birthday party for ages 6 – 66!
