Quick and Easy Bracelets for Holiday Gifts

Quick Bracelet Gifts with the 3D Bracelet Jig

The holidays are approaching quickly – can you say Peppermint Mocha? I’m trying to get ahead of the game by making up a supply of quick, easy, and beautiful bracelets for gifting to all of the wonderful women who make my life run smoothly – my kid’s teacher, the bus driver, my hairdresser, my wonderful house cleaner, and everyone else who keeps this hot mess mama in check!

Beadalon’s 3D Bracelet Jig won the Craft and Hobby Association’s Hot Product Award in 2015 for good reason! This versatile Jig is a great base for making bangle bracelets, and is the perfect tool for making the popular adjustable bangles that everyone is stacking these days. Today’s Facebook Live over on the Beadalon Page focused on making these two designs. Missed the live feed? No problem, you can watch it archived here!
