I recently got my hands on Julianna's new Beadalon Jewel Loom™! First, I opened up and read the instructions, watched THIS video by Julianna and taught my niece how to make one first. She is 14 and LOVED this, and was finding the process VERY easy. She is now thinking Christmas gifts for all her friends.
The next day, my friend Sam came over and I taught her and she LOVED it as well. The learning curve for simple bracelets is quick. Then it was my turn and I have made 3 pieces so far.
I am sharing one with you today - on Julianna's blog. The one side, I coated with glitter so that it could be DRESSY for the evening - it looks so sparkly in the sun. The other side I left plain for more casual wear. I could have coated the whole thing with black glitter, blue, pink, and the possibilities are really endless.
