Outdoor Summer Fun with Artbeads

This summer we want you to have fun outside showing off the lovely creations you made, anticipating the times when you could wear the bright colors you had so much fun using in your ideas. We’re ready for summer to be here so we can show off more great uses of color in our ideas from the Learning Center. Check out some of our favorite ideas below. From barbecue parties to a summer carnival stroll, you’ll find hundreds of different reasons to try our summer picks. Don’t forget, these are all free ideas available at our Learning Center!

For outdoor parties this summer, make this charming lantern with colorful butterflies. It will catch everyone’s eye in the daylight and provide a warming glow at night. Make a lantern out of not much more than Swarovski crystal flatbacks and craft paper.

Going to play by the poolside or take a stroll across the boardwalk? Sport this vintage-inspired bracelet that will complement any fun summer outfit. Learn how to make a bracelet you can wear for casual occasions that takes no time at all! This is another simple idea—all you need are a few Nunn Design™ products and some ICE Resin®.

We want you to have fun outside this summer and these craft projects will take no time to make!

    Fold forming is another fun technique–a sort of mashup of origami and forging. Tools are simple, and you can create many forms in 3-5 minutes. The inventor of this process, Charles Lewton-Brain, is a jewelry educator mentioned in many jewelry books. Look up the Fold Form tab on his website, http://www.brainpress.com. He teaches in Calgary Canada, but gives a few workshops stateside each summer. With so many possibilities, fold forming is an addictive jewelry technique!
