Simple yet ingenious, the Rainbow Loom® craze has swept the nation. This compact plastic loom introduced a new generation to jewelry making with its accessibility. But why should little kids have all the fun? Rubber Band Jewelry All Grown Up includes Rainbow Loom® tutorials as well as directions on how to weave free hand with a crochet hook, a technique that tweens and teens will pick up easily. Add in the step-by-step instructions, full-color photographs, and numbered diagrams, and these patterns become a snap.

Add a dash of sparkle and shine to these projects with beads, findings, buttons, and other accents. Friends will need a keen eye to spot that these accessories are made from rubber bands.
