Kit Day is tomorrow! We are unboxing our Spider Queen Design Kit and revealing the contents. If you are unfamiliar with our mystery Design Kits, check them out. Each kit is inspired by an iconic theme. We have explored destinations, artists, holidays, and more. The contents are secret until the end of each month. We then reveal and create in front of a live audience. Every kit is a self-contained jewelry tool box. If you have crimping pliers and cutters, you have everything you need to make a bunch of wonderful jewelry.
Join us for Kit Day! We will be unboxing our Spider Queen Design Kit and making Halloween inspired jewelry. We will also be releasing our newest kit and a bunch of bead mixes and bead strands that you are going to adore. Kit Day is our favorite 'creative holiday' at Soft Flex Company and we think you will love celebrating the joy of making jewelry with us!
Today we are celebrating the changing seasons. We are looking at finished jewelry from our autumn themed Foxy Lady Design Kit (Sold Out). If you love the comfy cozy feeling of the fall, this kit was the perfect way to design jewelry that celebrated the season. Earthy colors and mischievous forest creatures are a fun way to say farewell to the bright heat of summer fashion. If you would like your next jewelry design to appear in our finished designs blog, make sure you grab our Spider Queen kit and post your photos on our VIB group. You will also be entered into a giveaway to win your next kit. Let's make some jewelry!
Check out our Design Kits! Each kit is a themed collection of beading supplies. You never know where one of our kits will transport you! We have indulged in mystical purple with our Purple Rain Design Kit. We have caught Cupid's arrows with our Cupid's Kiss kit. We have danced in the fallen leaves of the Harvest Moon. We have relaxed on the lush blue Sea of Crete with our Santorini Dreams kit. We have raced down rain slicked streets with our Neon Nights kit. So many fun adventures. What is our next journey going to be? All of our kits are thoughtfully designed and curated. You are going to love the supplies inside!
Hurry! Our kits are limited in quantity and usually sell out before the end of the month. At the end of each month, we reveal our recent kit on the Soft Flex Facebook page and YouTube Page. Open your kit when you get it or wait for Sara to reveal the contents and open yours along with us live!
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.
Our kits are great for skill building. We want our kits to feel challenging. We want them to be accessible for beginners and advanced designers alike, but we love to throw in elements that may seem difficult to test our beaders skills and make them think out of the box. We think jewelry is great when it is easy. But when you really have to engage your mind and process your materials and tools, we think that your jewelry has the potential to be life changing.
Our kits may be inspired by a colorway or theme, but they are meant to be creative interpretations. Imagination and innovation do not follow the rules. Expect the unexpected.
Supplies are very limited. Don’t miss out!

Fall is coming back! Time to brew up some pumpkin spice and savor the earthy tones and lovely changing world outside. This kit is an ode to the changing seasons and autumn jewelry styles. Learn how to make a braided bracelet with Soft Flex wire and beads. You are going to love Sara's inventive bracelet design!
The patter of tiny feet breaks the silence. A sleek band of fur darts between the pine trees. In a small clearing, the animal reveals itself. The bright eyed fox has a smoky red coat with black tipped ears and socks. She crouches and raises her head. Painted leaves disembark from tree branches above. They spiral in slow dances and land on her velvet fur. A white spotted male catches her gaze. She acknowledges with a sly wink. She is cunning and not willing to afford this one her time. She walks away in a slow and rhythmic slink. The day is early and the den is cold. Time for an adventure! Visit an autumn forest with this colorful kit. Make jewelry that is perfect for fall.
