In Pathfinder, is it possible to create an item using the Craft Wondrous Item feat, that provides a skill bonus to Spellcraft for creating magic items?

What would be the most appropriate item and cost?

Of course!

Usually such magic items would confer a competence bonus to said skill. For crafting stuff, I would suggest either gloves, head, or ring slot, but that's what makes sense to me (and if you're looking for suggestions for your GM, he/she may have their own opinions).

As far as cost goes, I think 2,000 gp to 5,000 gp would be appropriate assuming it only applies to Spellcraft for creating magic items (versus say identifying a spell).

Example of a magic item granting craft skill bonuses: Ring of Maniacal Devices

Hope this helps!

    \$\begingroup\$ The general crafting costs for a wondrous item granting a skill bonus would be determined by this formula: "Bonus squared x 100 gp" (Source: Table-Estimating-Magic-Item-Gold-Piece-Values). So for a +5 item that'll be around 2500 Gold. Of course, if @borro wants to limit it to only creating magic items, I'd add a discount of about 20% - 40%. \$\endgroup\$ Oct 8, 2014 at 6:38

There is a published amulet that does this

The Armillary Amulet published in the Pathfinder Module: From Shore to Sea

The amulet grants its wearer a +5 competence bonus on Spellcraft checks

Being a magic item from a module, you may want to check with your GM if the item is allowed.
