I got involved in the Rainbow Loom in January of 2014. I had happened across a different type of rubber band looming kit. At the time I was still very much mourning the loss of my long time emotional support animal, and best friend, Murphy the cat. I really wanted something to keep my mind occupied until the pain was less and less. The rubber band bracelets seemed really cool so I picked it up. I learned quickly that i couldn’t do all of the things with my knock off loom that the people in the Youtube tutorials were doing. It wasn’t long before I was ordering hte official Rainbow Loom.
In a matter of weeks, my wrists were covered in new bracelets, and I had found a whole new community to talk to, and tell my story to. I was surprised to learn that so many of the people who did Rainbow Loom were adults when the product was marketed to children mostly. I was equally surprised by the kindness in the community, and the support that was given to anyone who was trying to loom. I have made some good friends, and acquaintances through Looming (which is what we call it in the Rainbow Loom community).
I have learned to make so many different things, and just recently started designing my own products by putting two designs together to make new things. I hope you guys will enjoy the gallery I’m going to create. I just recently revived my Etsy shop, Rainbow Bridge Custom Accessories. Come check us out!
