Facet Jewelry Box Projects Completed

Well I’ve completed my Facet Jewelry Box projects. If you recall from my last post, I was asked to review a box and I gave you a coupon code if you order in November. I’ll repeat the info below. Here are the projects I completed.

This is the Embedded Peyote Bracelet. This was very easy to do, especially if you know peyote stitch. If you don’t, its a great stitch to have in your repetoire and you can use the instructions to make this bracelet in a variety of colors! I think it would look great in southwest colors, myself!

These are the Woven Fringe Earrings. This was a little bit harder for me, just to maintain the tension needed. You need a little bit more patience for these, but they are worth it. And again, make them in a variety of colors! I’ve posted these photos on my Instagram and copied them to my facebook page as well.

You can find previews of future boxes on the Facet Jewelry Box FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM
pages, just follow the links! AND in addition to all this, Facet has
given me a COUPON CODE for you to use, to receive HALF OFF your purchase
of your FIRST BOX when you use coupon code HALFOFF at checkout – Facet link here!

Facet Project Box by Kalmbach

I was recently asked to review a Facet Jewelry Box (by Kalmbach) – I said yes, of course! I was given a choice of either the Stringing Box – 2 quick and easy projects – or the Stitching Box – 2 more intricate, advanced needle-and-thread projects. Since I love bead weaving I chose the stitching box!

I received it very quickly. Please note, the box I received is no longer in circulation, but you can sign up for the November box and future boxes through Kalmbach here.

The projects come in this sweet blue box, very nicely and safely packaged. 

When you open it, here’s what you see – as you can see, you get a book of instructions and photos of both projects included in the box.

Here is a photo of the box, the instruction sheet and the projects – they are nicely packaged individually and labeled so there’s no hunting around for parts or beads! You also receive a spool of fireline that’s large enough for both projects.

The first project I received is the Embedded Peyote bracelet – this looks fun, and I like the colors, especially for the holidays! I think this would make a great gift. What’s also great is that you have the instructions so you can purchase more beads to make more bracelets!

The second project is Woven Fringed Earrings – enough beads for the pair of earrings and all the findings as well. Again, great colors for the holidays!

And finally, here’s a photo of the instruction book. You receive clear photos and instructions to make your pieces, and as I’ve mentioned, you can make the projects again and again with your own beads and findings.

You can find previews of future boxes on the Face Jewelry Box FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM pages, just follow the links! AND in addition to all this, Facet has given me a COUPON CODE for you to use, to receive HALF OFF your purchase of your FIRST BOX when you use coupon code HALFOFF at checkout – Facet link here!

I will publish another post when I finish the projects – I wanted to get this info out there in case you’re interested in using the coupon for either a gift for someone or yourself! I’m going to CA for a week with my mom, so that’s probably a good time to get them done! I’ll let you know here and on my Instagram!

Facet – The Bead Box

Not sure if you heard, but Facet (Stringing, formerly Bead Style) is launching The Bead Box – one stop kits for jewelry making! It’s a monthly subscription and you can choose one of two options!

“We are so pleased and proud to be launching the Facet Jewelry Box — a subscription-based service for beaders of all stripes! We’ll have two different boxes to choose from: The Quick & Easy Stringing Box, and The Bead Stitching Box. Sign
up today, and a new box will be delivered to your doorstep once per
month, with not one, but TWO surprise beading projects.
Everything
that you need to make two finished pieces of jewelry will be included:
all the beads, wire, clasps, and findings, plus complete how-to
instructions with photos and patterns — in full color. All you need to
supply are the tools!”

Not only that, but if you go to THIS LINK, you can also enter to win prizes!  The box subscriptions start in January, but you can sign up now! Please note that reserving a spot does not sign you up for the subscription service just yet, but does get you entered into the contest and allows you to receive information when the boxes come available!

“You can sign up today
during our special pre-launch period and be the first to get your hands
on our inaugural boxes. By reserving your spot early in this exciting
new subscription box offering, you’ll be automatically entered into a
drawing to win a full years’ subscription (that’s 12 free boxes
containing everything you need to make 24 projects!) — and if you refer a
friend, there will be even more perks and rewards!”



Once you sign up, you’ll receive a survey asking your opinion on what types of things you’d like to see in the boxes.  Then later, you’ll receive an opportunity to sign up for the subscription!  See – easy! And just signing up during the pre-launch places NO obligation on you to actually purchase a box, BUT you might win something!
