Knoxville, Tennessee, home of Jewelry Television. I was so honored to have Beadalon and John Bead Corp ask me to represent their products. Never realized how much FUN it was going to be!
I've talked before about how much preparation happens before taping TV shows, right? This was no exception. Even with all I did at home before flying to Knoxville, I ended up spending a whole day there working on new loom pieces. Luckily, there was a marathon of all the Indiana Jones movies on TV, so I set up on my big comfy hotel bed and beaded happily away. It was too hot out to do much sightseeing anyway. (But next visit, Dollywood!)
Using the Spin n Bead is great--I never would make something like this without one, since stringing beads one by one for each strand braided here would take forever.
Showed these loomwork cuffs on Facebook already. That Beadalon loom is really easy to use. Definitely fast--and addicting!
Earrings loomed with the different Delica kits from John Bead. Each colorway collection is for sale on the JTV site. If they haven't sold out yet!
Margo and Kim, the Jewel School hosts, getting ready at their desk in the studio.
And a short video tour of the Jewel school set right before taping, with a little cameo from Daniel John of John Bead Corp who came down to watch the show. I'll let ya'll know when my next appearance will be and what cool stuff I'll be sharing!
