Hurray! Today is Kit Day! Kit Day is our favorite company holiday. We cannot wait to share our kits with you. Our design kits are themed jewelry making kits. Each kit is a mystery until we open them at the end of the month. Last month we offered our Golden Gate Design Kit. This kit was a love letter to the iconic bridge. Today we are going to take a look at some finished jewelry designs from that kit. Let's see what Soft Flex Company staff, friends, and members of our VIB Facebook group created with the Golden Gate Design Kit!
Don't forget to join us live on Facebook, today, when we reveal the contents of our Golden Gate Design Kit. Sara will open the kit and make some lovely jewelry with the components and beads inside. Our Facebook videos are almost like a free jewelry making class online. You will enjoy our fun lessons.
Today we are looking at jewelry designs created with that kit by Sandy Huntress from Keepsake Crafts. We also have designs from Soft Flex Company staff members Kristen Fagan and Sara Oehler. And finally, we are showcasing some designs from members from of our Facebook group – VIB. The designs from our VIB group are incredible and diverse. You are going to love their jewelry!
Did you buy our Golden Gate Design Kit? This kit was inspired by the world's most famous bridge. This landmark is an iconic mix of color and mystery. The rich red span is often hugged in pearlescent fog and is a striking figure against blue skies and soft pink color banded sunsets. We think we encapsulated the mystery of this Art Deco masterpiece with this stunning design kit.
Check out our kits. We have tool kits for designers that need to beef up their toolbox. We offer starter kits to beginners that need the fundamentals. And we offer mystery design kit collections that are themed. If you have the tools, a themed mystery kit includes everything else you need to create a bunch of unique jewelry.
Sara Oehler Designs
Our gallery staff puts the Design Kits together. They take a theme and run with it. These themes have explored so many fun worlds and ideas. We have looked at high magic fantasy with a unicorn theme. The romance of seaside Greek villages. We have looked to the holidays for inspiration and have celebrated the people we love. All of our kits are unique and are not sold elsewhere. If you would like to purchase a kit, we release new ones towards the end of each month. Quantities are very limited, so make sure you grab one quick!

Kristen Fagan Designs
Each kit contains enough beads and wire to really explore. You can create necklaces, earrings, bracelets and sometimes rings with our kits. The contents allow for many jewelry pieces and you can make designs as unique as you are.
If you miss out on one of our jewelry Design Kits, there is still a chance to design with the color palette. We often follow up with Trios Beading Wire Packs and Bead Mixes that share the theme of the Design Kits. This is a good way to grab some of the fun of the Design Kit or enhance the Design Kit you purchased.
VIB Group Member Designs
We gathered a small assortment of fun designs from our
VIB Facebook group. There were so many wonderful ideas and jewelry pieces. You really need to join our group to see them all. A lot of our members also have stores online. If you see a design you love, make sure you let the designer know. They may sell you that design or at least let you know how they made it. We would love to see your work too, join us today!
