Welcome to Kit Day. Today is our favorite company holiday. We unveil our most recent mystery themed jewelry making kit and explore its contents. Last month we offered a Dr. Seuss inspired kit. The Whimsical Beadtastical Design Kit (Sold Out) was a cheerful ode to one of our favorite writers. We will unbox this fun kit and make some jewelry, live on Facebook.You are going to love our kits, we have a new one each month. Our kits of full of enough beads and components to make a bunch of jewelry. You just need basic beading tools. Let's have a look at what Soft Flex employees and members of our wonderful VIB Facebook group created with our previous kit, the Dark Heart Design Kit.
Join us live on Facebook, today. We are going to open our Whimsical Beadtastical Design Kit. Sara will show you how much fun our kits are and she will show you how to make some playful jewelry. Our Facebook videos are almost like a free jewelry making class online. Get a crash course on how to design and finish your favorite new necklace.
Let's look at a wonderful gallery of jewelry designs from our previous kit. The Dark Heart Design Kit (Sold Out) was a sophisticated collection of Valentine's Day themed beads and components. It was more nuanced than the normal bubble gum pink you might consider when you think about this holiday. We have Dark Heart jewelry from Soft Flex Employees Sara Oehler and Kristen Fagan. We also have a lush mix of twilight jewelry from the creative members of our VIB Facebook group.
The Painted Sunflowers Design Kit (Sold Out) is a reverent nod to the lush colors of Van Gogh's brushwork.
Vincent Van Gogh was enamored of the living beauty of sunflowers. These amazing heliotropic marvels of nature are a stunning paradigm of beauty. Van Gogh captured these sun worshippers with an intimate eye. His work has awed generations. We think your creativity will blossom with this floral kit. Blue skies are a beautiful backdrop for golden flowers and natural greens. Let the seeds of inspiration germinate!
Sara will be doing a live broadcast on the Soft Flex Facebook page, with the Sunflowers Design Kit, on Wednesday, March 25th at 2pm (PST).
If you'd like to join us in the design challenge next month, buy this kit and challenge yourself to try something new and unexpected. If you are new to beading, this kit comes with findings, beads, wire, and surprises.
Supplies are very limited. Don’t miss out!

Dare to be a designer. Our mystery kits are packed bundles of motivation. Even if you are in a creative dry spell, these little packages are sure to make you bristle with a desire to make jewelry. If you have the tools, a themed mystery kit includes everything else you need to create a bunch of unique jewelry.
The talented staff in our gallery puts our Design Kits together. They start with a theme and explore it. What colors, what beads, what wire encapsulates their thoughts on this theme? Each month they put their dark hearts into a thoughtful kit full of unique and compelling elements.
All of our kits are unique and are not sold elsewhere. If you would like to purchase one, we release our latest kit towards the end of each month. Quantities are very limited, so make sure you grab one quick!
Our jewelry design kits are a great buy. Every kit is a bargain, chock full of interesting supplies and beads. Inside, you will find findings, beads, and wire. We include so many goodies. You will be making jewelry for days. The contents are themed, but they are also perfect if you just want to add everything to your existing beading supplies. We release holiday themes, but every kit is full of beads that can be worn year 'round. Our Dark Heart Design Kit (Sold Out) may be perfect for Valentine's Day, but they beads can be mixed with your own stash and added to a necklace for summer or a bracelet for winter.
