Annie’s Simply Beads Kit-of-the-Month Club is a monthly jewelry subscription box where YOU make your own creation! For $19.99 per month, you’ll receive a beading kit with step-by-step instruction and all the beads and findings you need to complete a piece of jewelry you’ll love to wear!
This kit is the “Elegant Earrings”, with three different and lovely earrings!
The kit comes in a plastic tray with deep dishes to keep all your beads and findings separate. It comes with its own plastic cover so you can move it around, even if you are not done with your project yet. The beads and findings were nicely packaged in plastic bags inside the dishes in the tray.
The booklet has nice and clear pictures of the individual components in the kit.
There’s also a list of the techniques you’ll be using. You need to keep the Beading Guide you’ve received with the first shipment, but on the website there’s a tutorial video for each kits for further explanations. And we get to do a lot of simple loops with this kit, I’m soooo happy! (I’m a serial looper, once I start making loops, I can do it for hours!)
The instructions and assembly patterns were easy to follow along. You get both a picture and written instructions for each component.
When I know I’ll have time to make all the pieces in one go, I like to spread everything on my mat, separated by projects.
And here’s how I make loops. I make piles of 5, and there’s 4 steps: thread, bend, cut, loop. Rinse and repeat! I’ll admit, the pearl earrings threw me off a bit because they were in set of six!
But I survived (I’m being dramatic, I know!). These are the pearl earrings, ready to be assembled.
And they are lovely and light.
These are so cute! No need for a necklace, they are perfect with a little black dress.
These were the easiest to make, but they would be stunning to wear to a brunch!
Final results! I love all these earrings! They are easy to wear, they are not too heavy and the colors are great and easy to pair with anything! Overall, it took me a bit more than an hour to make, but YMMV depending on your looping skills.
Annie’s Simply Beads Kit-of-the-Month is perfect for beginners, or for someone more advanced who just wants to sit down with everything needed to make a fun design without having to think to much about it. Few techniques are needed to achieve great looks that can be reproduced with different type of beads and findings. The tray is an added bonus as I was able to move everything from my beading room to the living room without any problem.
