How To Make A Spring Jewelry Set With Our Wonderland Jewelry Making Kit

Spring is coming and we are looking forward to blue skies and clear weather. This week on Free Spirit Beading, we watched Kristen design a jewelry set that is perfect for the new season with our Wonderland kit (Sold Out). This colorful jewelry making kit was an homage to the iconic tale of Alice in Wonderland. We love the punky palette we put together for this cute kit. Pastel blues, soft greens, and mystical purples make for a wild journey down the rabbit hole. Make the Red Queen jealous with a design of your own!
