Create beautiful colorful beads from pre-cut foil strips! Make necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings with the easy to use bead-making machine. Just roll the foil strips onto a roller and crank the arm to form the beads. String these beads onto the included satin cord, elastic, and earring hooks to make funky jewelry that will dazzle your friends!

Hands rolling foil

Just roll the foil…
Device being cranked

Turn the crank…
Just Roll, Crank, and Wear!
The kit contains 72 pieces of foil in 4 colors for hours of fun and exploration. The child first folds and rolls the foil strip, then sandwiches it between one of 3 color-coded mold shapes. Turning the arm crank compresses the foil into a compact bead, which feels solid and looks great. The child can make round, cylindrical, or cone-shaped beads, or combine the molds to create funky, asymmetrical shapes. Combine 2 colors for a cool two-tone look!

Totally Unique, Totally Fun
The Foil Bead Maker is a completely unique device which transforms flat strips of foil into gorgeous beads. Your child will quickly get the hang of this fun, engaging activity which is truly addictive. She can experiment with different color combinations and mold shapes, then plan her necklaces and bracelets. Girls become empowered when they are able to create jewerly that they will be proud to wear. Your child will make fashionable accessories that look like store-bought finished products.

Special Features Make it Easy to Use!
The Foil Bead Maker has a special ratcheting feature which clicks when it's time to stop cranking. The special roller tube snaps into the back of the device for storage, and the two halves of each mold are color coded for easy recognition. It comes with great printed instructions for getting started, as well as an exciting online video which makes visualizing the activity even easier.

What's In The Box?
Comes with a Foil Bead Maker, 3 Bead-Shaper molds, 72 sheets of foil in 4 colors, 4 earring hoops, elastic cord, satin cord, a beading needle, and instructions

Customer Reviews

My 6-year old loves this toy!
TTO
The beads hold up remarkably well for what they are made out of (compressed foil), but they will over time fall apart.
Kevin Rector
She loves it because she can make both the beads and the jewelry.

I bought this for my 7 year old niece as a Christmas gift. She was extremely excited when she opened it and insisted that her parents let her use it right away! I should have known that it was going to be difficult to use, however, when they opened it and saw and instructional VIDEO! While the end beads are really neat (vibrant colors and varying shapes), it was really difficult for my niece to do on her own. As long as you are buying it for a child who has an adult who will be willing to help, I think it's a very neat gift. If the child is going to have to use it on his/her own, I would suggest that he/she be older than my 7 year old niece!

My daughter just received this as a gift and she and a friend are having a lot of fun making beads and stringing them. I would recommend for 8, maybe 7, and older.

I bought this for my 7-year old daughter. She likes it very much. Even her 11- year old brother wants to use it. It is fun and the beads are cool. Just one problem, the cap of the bead maker keeps falling off.

I bought this in an amazon deal not sure what to expect. It is really fun and works perfectly. Even the boys and adults wanted to try it and had fun making the beads. The beads are hard and sturdy, just like you'd want them to be. My 7 year-old can do it without assistance. We will be ordering refills.

My 6-year old loves this toy! It is a lot of fun, and encourages her creativity. We haven't had any issues with durability at all, and it's been used so much that we've bought the refill pack. I showed her how to use it for the first time, and from then on she did it on her own. I recommend cutting the foil in half - the foil will last longer that way and the full sheet makes really big beads.

I got this for my daughter for christmas. She is 7 years old and other then the rolling part she can do the rest by herself. She loves it because she can make both the beads and the jewelry. Very durable as well.

My mom purchased this for my daughter for Christmas. The video made it look easy enough and it really is. My daughter just turned 6 last month and has made about 10 beads. She does need a little bit of help folding the foil into thirds because she folds it unevenly or gets rough with it and it tears. For me, this is no problem and I'm considering just folding the rest of them up real quick so she doesn't need to run to me everytime she needs to have the foil folded. She also has a little bit of difficulty rolling the foil tight enough around the dowel to where it fits into the bead cruncher thing. With some practice, she's getting better at it. It's also easy enough to do where if she preps the bead and loads it in, her 3 year old brother can crank it to crunch the foil which makes the bead.

The toy comes with 72 pieces of foil, which I think should definetly be enough to last through when the novelty of this toy wears off and she moves on to something else. The company also sells refill packs of 72 pieces of foil as well.

I bought this for my 5 year old daughter. She is unable to fold the foil into thirds properly but can do everything else by herself. Making the beads is easy and fun and the jewelry, although gaudy, is fun to make. She enjoyed this much more than the traditional make your own jewelry kit. Highly recommend.
