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.

given me a COUPON CODE for you to use, to receive HALF OFF your purchase

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.

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 Jewelry Box!

So remember when I posted about the Facet Jewelry Box – a subscription where you can get a monthly project in the mail? Well, they’re out! I received mine! They come in a very pretty teal box that you can not mistake! However, I can’t show you a photo of my box because it has ended up in recycle. Oh well!  But here are some photos of the projects in my box!

You get two beginner projects and an instruction booklet.

In my box, I received an earring project, wrapped briolettes, and a necklace project, Pearl Cascade.  Your instruction booklet lists materials, tools, and clear instructions with photos!

The project baggies come with all materials needed to make the projects – you just need to supply your tools. They show you how to make everything.

Here are some up close photos of the projects from my box.

The back of your instruction book also provides you with a way to share your creations, and a coupon code to get 10% off a purchase at their web site!

Unfortunately, I haven’t make the projects yet. I just haven’t had the time between work and a few other life events that can’t be helped. I’ll let you know when I do.

All in all, I think these are great beginner projects that are easily made in a small amount of time (based on my first box). I don’t know if they will have intermediate or advanced project lines, but I think it would be a great idea. If you like getting a surprise in the mail each month, this is a great thing to do! I know I love getting my beady mail!
