  7. I would like to see you show more jewelry making videos. I don't quiet understand the crimping thing. My husband bought me beads last year for Christmas and I played around with them a little and decided I need someone to teach me...so they're still in the bags in my closet.
    Have a great Thanksgiving.

    Robyn--
    What a beautiful, simple bracelet! You made it look very easy, even while videotaping. I've dabble in beading over the years, but scrapbooking keeps me so busy, I don't have much time for it. You've inspired me to take it up again, so thanks! Hope you're having a great time on your cruise, and thanks for giving us more fun videos while you're gone! Happy Thanksgiving.

  21. Thanks fo rthe video Robyn. What a nice change of pace. I have thought about beading, but just never really got into it. If you make more videos - I might even think I can do it.

  29. Super cute and not as hard as I thought it was ;)!! But the crimp bead when you are putting the clasp on does the end go back through the crimp bead? It was hard to tell on the video. Thank you and I hope you and your family have a wonderful cruise and vacation!!!

  37. Hmm bracelets with the Cricut? I can't afford another hobby. Crochet, knitting, card making, scrapbooking and the PC. For crying out loud now I have to go to the Craft store again.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow, you make it look so easy to do! I think my hubby would be upset if I started another hobby! And with all the lose stuff, I think it would be hard to keep it away from the kitten..hehehe I have friends love making earings and stuff like that and I will look into buying maybe a kit, from one of the blackfriday sales and see, since you make it look so darn easy to do.. I hope you guys have a great time!! Denise dmprosser@cableone.net

  40. Thank you!! I was going to ask you to do a video on jewelry. I just bought 3 pairs of earrings from a co-worker but would like to start making them myself. Did you teach yourself or take a class?

    Enjoy your vacation.

  41. Love this video! I made a few pieces of jewelry and haven't made any for a couple of years. This was a great motivator for me. Hope you do more. I've really forgotten the how to! Have fun at Disney!!

  42. I've never done any beading so it was great to have a little insight. Thanks Robyn!

    ReplyDelete
  43. You always make it look so simple. Can you make one using the stretchy cord next time? I bought a spool of it but have no idea how to make a bracelet with it. Smiles, Lynda

  66. i was so excited when previously you told us about the jewelery videos coming soon...we make jewelery with our students who have physical disabilities and are developmentally delayed. they make bead choices by hitting a switch or scanning with their eyes. then we (the teaching assistants) put the jewelry items together and sell them to staff as a fund raiser to get monies to rent buses to take the students out into the community. we are limited in our abilities as jewelery makers so i will be following these videos closely and showing them to my team mates at our weekly meetings! yea!! we improve our skills, improve the jewelery, improve our fundraising, get out into the community and give i=our students exposure to experiences they might not ever have! tfs

  67. Beautiful colors! Looks easy. Wish there was a better way of seeing how you loop the fasteners on but it's hard on video I'm sure. Makes me want to start doing those too!

  82. Great bracelet Robyn....
    hope you have a great trip!!!
    I love making jewelery, I started making jewelery before I picked up scrappin, and card making, the clasp you were using is called a toggle clasp, i believe, and the crimping tool is a must have... and so are the pliers, and you yes you need a few types of pliers, hope that helps someone,

    ReplyDelete
  83. Thanks for another great video & quite a surprise with this one. You made me want to try it again. The crimp bead is what did me in when trying the first time. It is SO LITTLE but using the wire the way you did made it look possible. Happy Thanksgiving to you too and hope you are really enjoying your cruise. I'm jealous! =)
