There's something about designing, and creating your own jewelry. Whenever I took those tests to see what you'd be good at, it was always jewelry maker. Sometimes these types of "toys" are more fun for me, than for the kids. However, this one, the kids really enjoyed. It's nice to make something from nothing, and complete the project so you can wear it. Totally satisfying!
