I fell for the Bijou Indochine jewelry designs by Natalie Bombet at the Momtrends Holiday event. I ended up doing most of my holiday shopping at her online store. When COVID hit, the clever entrepreneur pivoted and started making DIY kits. This week my girls and I have been obsessed with making beaded jewelry with Bijou Kits.

Making Beaded Jewelry with Bijou Kits
Here's where we are this summer. It's hot. The kids are bored. They are also a little testy thanks to all the rules and regulations (which are warranted) due to COVID. We are constantly looking for activities that don't require the internet. These beading kits are delivered with all the tools and supplies you will need to make 12 or more bracelets at home.
These kits are were the brainchild of Natalie as she worked her way though the Stay-at-home lifestyle. For the price of 1 bracelet you can make up to 15 bracelets on your own with a Bijou Kits.

What comes in a Bijou Kit
The kits come in three different colors and each is $45. You'll get over 300 beads and all the tools you need to start designing. There are three colorways to pick from--each set has an energy associated with the beads.
- Assorted gold & silver charms, pendants and spacers
- Measuring tape for sizing
- One bead stopper
- Two stretch cord tubes in two different sizes
There's also a "kid" kit. I found the adult kit was perfect for my girls who are 15 and 12.
No Instructions Required
We didn't read a single set of instructions. We simply opened the kit and got to work. That's my kind of entertainment. I don't want to be burdened with googling instructions and frustration. With these kits we just got to the business of creating.
Whether it's a summer activity or rainy day bit of bonding, Bijou Kits make a great mother/daughter activity. I know I'm going to forget all the movies we've watched during COVID, but I will treasure my bracelet for years to come.
