Although it’s ultimately more satisfying to create your own designs, I’ve found that putting together a project from a kit can be fun and relaxing.
The folks at Facet Jewelry offered to send me the two boxes from their new jewelry box subscription service so I could show them to you and let you know my thoughts.
Each box contains two projects and you can choose boxes that have either stitching or stringing projects. They cost $24.95 per box, but go down to as low as $23 if you opt for a longer subscription.
I love that shipping to the United States is included in the price! If you are outside the U.S. shipping is $9 flat rate per box.
In the video I’ll show you the (mostly) completed projects, and give my thoughts on the designs, materials and instructions.
- excellent instructions
- a nice instruction booklet that you can use for future projects
- a few extras of the bits that you might need more of, like head pins, crimps & crimp covers
- good for beginners
- not very good quality materials
- no stringing in the “stringing” box
- no choice of colors
- projects are quite basic
As I mention in the video, two of the things I put in the “cons” category could be good qualities. It might push us out of our comfort zones to not always get to work with our favorite colors. And sometimes doing a very simple, basic project can be a soothing break while still being busy crafting.

I received these two boxes for free from Facet Jewelry in exchange for a review. All opinions shared are my honest feelings about their products.
