Let me first give a shout out to the Kansas City Chiefs for their Super Bowl win! My husband and I follow other NFL teams, but KCC put in a phenomenal 4th quarter performance that was fun to watch….unless you were a 49ers fan… my sympathies to them this morning.
I promised to share another one of my Czech Beads subscription boxes and so I will. This one is a completely different look than the previous box and made more pieces. They look a bit more formal and jazzy than the more casual flower motif of the previous one. Once again I did not follow exactly the recommended use of the materials with regards to the bracelet. I made it a stretch bracelet rather than a double strand on stringing wire with a clasp. That’s just my personal preference. Doing that leaves extra beads to use in other projects, should I choose to do that.
Just a reminder, this particular subscription box (BohemStyle from Kraftika aka Czech Beads Exclusive) gives you all the materials to use plus a link to a video that shows you how to put together the pieces. This was the November 2019 box, which also came with an extra (Christmas) gift that made earrings that matched the set. The beads were lovely in the laboradite like colors with an AB coating and etched look to them, with donut/ring, barrel, melon, metal tube (donut beads go over the tubes) and druk shapes. These beads really show off their colors in reflective light. What I like about these subscription boxes is that you get materials that you may not typically buy or use, plus instructions on how to use the beads to make each piece. Some may find this crimps your creative vibe, but I sometimes like just having it all together to make something without any frustrations on what to do. Can be very meditative and relaxing. So here is the subscription box as it comes and then put together by me…..
I have one more subscription box to complete and I will post the before and after pics of that, whenever I get it completed.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope this inspires you to take a serious look at signing up for subscription boxes from the various DIY bead and jewelry sources out there.
Have a great day! ~Holly G (HBG Jewelry)
