EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Make your own sparkling jewelry with the Shimmer 'n Sparkle Gemex Dazzle & Personalize Gel Creations Studio. In just a few minutes, the gel changes to wearable jewelry: bracelets, necklaces, rings, and more.

The set comes with everything you need, so all you have to do is add magic gel and glitter to the molds, place the mold into the magic UV light shell, and wait three minutes for the gel to harden. The stars on top will light up, and the unit will beep when it's done. Wait 30 seconds to let the gel cool off, and then you can assemble the gems into jewelry. You can even layer gems for a 3-D effect.

Designs include a cuff bracelet; charms in the shape of a unicorn, rainbow, and moon; flower and star ring toppers; and more.

Is It Fun?

This is surprisingly easy to do, although kids may need some assistance with the bead and bangle bracelets because they can be a little hard to fill. But kids who enjoy wearing jewelry will love getting creative to make their own glittery accessories in such a quick and easy way.

Who It’s For

The Gel Creations Studio is for ages 8 and up. Some adult assistance may be required.
