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 called Shimmering Tide and features Mother-Of-Pearls and Freshwater Pearls!
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. It also tells you right away what you will need to complete the project besides what’s provided 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 kit for further explanations.
The instructions and assembly patterns were easy to follow along. You get both a picture and written instructions for each component.
Even if we have all the components nicely put on the tray, I prefer when everything is ready on my mat. Here, I was ready to make loops after loops after loops!
These are my personal steps for looping, and I do that in batches of five, for variety!
Everything is ready for assembly!
Getting my assembly sequence for the necklace ready so I don’t have to think too much about it and keep on binge watching some cooking show on Youtube!
Final results! This necklace took a bit more time to do, not because of all the loops to make, but because we needed to count links on the chain and make sure that the chain was not twisting in our hands. But it took me about 2-3 hours to complete.
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 too much about it. Few techniques are needed to achieve great looks that can be reproduced with a 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. This project was one of the easiest and it only took me about 30 minutes from setting up to the taking the pictures!
