Not only do I have both the September and October dollar bead boxes unboxing video for you, I also show several ideas for ways you can use these wonderful beads and findings.

One of the items was missing in my September bead box, but the folks at Dollar Bead Box got it out to me right away, and even threw in an extra goody!

I liked it so much that I decided to use it in a project (it’s the sparkly clasp in the lower right of the cover photo.) With the time delay I decided to save September’s box and do two months in one video.

It was interesting doing both months at the same time as I noticed patterns and themes that I hadn’t before. Like the fact that they included vintage buttons in both boxes, and also the vintage embossed hearts in two different colors. I can be kind of unobservant so I might not have noticed that otherwise.

If you want to get beads in the mail, there are two different subscriptions available:

Do you find yourself in kind of a rut when it comes to choosing elements for your jewelry? I know that I often gravitate towards the same colors, shapes and styles, which isn’t always a good thing, especially not if you want to stretch your creativity.

That’s why I love the Dollar Bead Box subscription service. It challenges me because so many times when I go shopping for beads I often will skip over things that I’m not sure what I would do with or things at first glance I just don’t care for.

These assortments are great because they make you think in different ways, challenge you to get creative with the supplies you have and therefore make new discoveries.

If you are interested, there are two different subscriptions available:

And even if you don’t go with a monthly bead subscription, consider choosing beads and findings that are out of your comfort zone the next time you go shopping!

Be watching next week for a project made using items from Dollar Bead Boxes.

Today I have for you a look at all the goodies in the July 2017 Dollar Bead Box and Bag. This is a monthly subscription service which brings Czech fire polish beads and/or an assortment of other beads and jewelry findings to your door.

It’s so much fun to get a box of beads in my mailbox every month!

Even if I usually have NO idea what I’m going to do with most of them, I love this kind of assortment because it challenges me. These boxes are great because they make you think creatively and open your mind to using new patterns, colors and materials.

What possibilities come to your mind when you see these beads? 

Enjoy the video and happy creating!

In today’s video I go through all of the goodies in the June 2017 Dollar Bead Box and Bag. In case you missed it, last month I reviewed this monthly subscription service which brings Czech fire polish beads, an assortment of other beads and jewelry findings to your door.

I love this kind of service because it challenges me. I find when I go to buy beads I often will skip over things that I’m not sure what I would do with or things that at first glance I just don’t care for. These assortments are great because they make you think in different ways, challenge you to get creative with the supplies you have and therefore make new discoveries.

By the way, last month Dollar Bead Box was kind enough to send 3 bead boxes to winners of a drawing on my YouTube channel! If you were one of the winners we would all love to hear what you think of your boxes, and would love to see what projects you’ve made with the supplies.

The bracelet I mentioned in the video that I was thinking of when looking at the dagger beads is the Damselfly Bracelet designed by Cynthia Kimura at Artbeads.com. After looking it up I found that what I thought were daggers on the edges are actually Rizo beads, but I think the daggers would work just as well
