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!

I followed all the links which take you to the same page but it doesn't say much. I entered my email hoping to find out how much it would cost but no info on that. Bead and Button has changed a lot lately--a lot of very simple stuff and a whole lot of stringing so I was looking for something new but it seems like everyone who signs up will vote so probably this is a teal gamble. You could get a bunch of real simple patterns that you could have made up yourself

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
