Create and refine necklaces, rings, and more with the help of this jewelry kit. This kit includes clamps, files, jeweler’s hammer and more to assist you with all parts of the jewelry crafting process. Though checking out the kit is free, you will need to provide your own jewelry materials such as beads, wires, and clasps. Jewelry kits are available for checkout by NAU and CCC students, faculty, and staff, as well as community members on a first-come, first-served basis.
