When I was a child, black rubber band bracelets were in style. They were called in Hebrew, גומיות. I remember visiting Israel one summer and seeing everybody in the streets wearing the one single rubber black bracelet. If you wanted to be cool, you wore them.
Many years have passed, and now my own daughter went through the same גומיות phase but this time they were colored shapes, colored animals, colored people.
Goomy Loom is now the fashion fad for children and teens in Israel. Rainbow Loom is what it is called in English.
It’s actually very fun and a nice to activity to do with the kids. I posted this on Facebook at Rebecca’s Beauty Parlour and couldn’t believe the amount of likes the post received and how many people looked at the post. 5,000 People. Was this a fashion craze? I searched the internet and here is what I found. http://www.today.com/style/new-silly-bandz-rainbow-loom-bracelets-hit-kids-6C10920802
The box comes with a loom, bag of rubber bands, clasps, small crochet needle, patterns, and of course, instructions. You can also look up on You Tube many useful videos as I have done to figure out how to make the jewelry:)
Here are some of the latest projects my daughter has made with her friends.
