I went to JTV's Jewel School last month and visited with Margot and show host Katie Rooke. They sold out of memory wire kits in less than an hour! It was a pretty amazing experience and I had fun seeing the show from the other side.
My pal Margot Potter is the new director of education for Jewelry Television® Jewel School™. You've probably seen lots of Margot's projects here on the Beadalon blog and site. She's a talented designer and a prolific author! Now, she's heading up the educational videos and blog on JTV's Jewel School site. She also sits in on the Jewel School shows on JTV, where viewers can call in to buy the latest and greatest products for beading.
Beadalon has put together a lot of new product collections that JTV is selling during their Jewel School shows. Over the next few months, you'll see members of the Beadalon Design Team visiting the set of Jewel School to show viewers ideas and techniques for using the kits. There are a lot of other guest celebrities visiting the show, too, so make plans to watch Jewel School on Sundays 9-noonEST.
They sold gemstone strands and loose beads in addition to Beadalon's jewelry making kits. I brought home some crystallized freshwater pearls and paintbrush jasper for my stash!
