Kylie Minogue makes jewellery for her boyfriend.

The 'All the Lovers' hitmaker crafted a necklace from string and a blue topaz for boyfriend Andres Velencoso last year but now he has lost the chain, she plans to continue making more for him to wear when she is not around.

She said: "I wanted him to have something jewellery-ish but not ostentatious. I had some string and I plaited it into a web into which I put the stone.

"The stone was tiny and I knew it would be lost in the string and that was the beauty of it.

"He wore it for a while and the stone got lost. So that's the jewellery I got him. Something precious and something from the kitchen cupboard, knowing he would lose it. And that was the most beautiful part.

"I will make him another one. And perhaps I will tie it a little bit more securely. And each time I make one, I'll tie it more securely."

Kylie - who lives in London with the model - also spoke of how much she enjoys spending time in Andres' native Spain, but she is currently too busy with her working commitments to take a holiday.

She told Britain's Glamour magazine: "I love to be in Spain. I eat well, I sleep well, I relax. But I don't have time to do any of that right now."
