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!

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 fantast

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go! I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads! These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells! And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they w
