It's Kit Day tomorrow! Kit Day is a Soft Flex Company holiday. On the last Wednesday of each month, we release a new jewelry making kit full of themed beading supplies. We also unbox our previous kit and make jewelry live on our social media sites. If you love creative project ideas and want to learn a new technique or two, you are going to want to join us for our favorite day of the month. Before the festivities begin, let's look at some of the finished jewelry designs from our last kit - Peace and Love!
Don't miss Kit Day! We will be unboxing our Foxy Lady Design Kit and making autumn 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 harmony. We are enjoying a summer of love. We are encouraging peace and tranquility with a jewelry making kit that is out of this world, man! If you love groovy jewelry and like a little hippie chic, our Peace and Love Design Kit is a must buy - hurry before we are sold out! This kit is wonderfully vibrant and full of fun!
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!
Finished Jewelry Designs From Our Peace And Love Design Kit
Peace And Love!
Our resident hippie has some great tips and jewelry making ideas. You can bet Kristen had the best jewelry and style at the Phish show! If you love the artistic thoughts and creative works of our Free Spirit Beader, make sure you check out her videos.
Sara Oehler Designs
Sara showed us how to make a colorful jewelry set with this kit. Far out! Along the way, the subject of tassels came up. Kay Goss showed us how to make gorgeous tassels and Sara was inspired to try making one during the show. Using the string we wrap our kits in, Sara created a quick tassel. She then suggested that our community make their own tassels.
Kristen Fagan Designs
It's the summer of love! We have a groovy collection of beads, man. Go with the flow and feel the vibe. This primo bead kit is sure to inspire and you don't have to spend a lot of bread to look far out. Right on! Be a free thinker and make some mellow jewelry that will blow your mind. This themed mix of beading supplies is a delight, you dig? Don't be a downer. Tune in and turn on with this hip design kit!
Peace & Love Flower Power Beaded Necklace With Apoxie Sculpt Pendant
Kristen Fagan embraced harmony and shared a Peace and Love design. On Monday's episode of Free Spirit Beading, she made a flower power necklace. She added an Apoxie Sculpt pendant she created while watching Christi Friesen’s Spring Fling TGBE presentation.
Live Beading Party with Cynthia Thornton of Green Girl Studios
Cynthia Thornton, of Green Girl Studios, made some beautiful jewelry with our Peace and Love Design Kit! Sara also beaded along and made a beautiful necklace and pair of earrings. Kristen used Colourful Soul Ultimate Paints and painted some Green Girl Studios components.
Live Beading Party with Kay Goss of Star's Beads
Tassels have been hot lately and we got the tassel bug after watching one of Kay's amazing videos. Sara and Kristen sat down with Kay so they could make tassels together. We sent Kay our Peace and Love Design Kit, but it turned out she received our Foxy Lady Design Kit by accident. No worries. Kay used the package twine that wrapped our kit and Sara used the Peace and Love. Together we created a colorful rainbow of tassel fun.
Kristen got extra creative and made a beaded wind charm.

If you are working with Soft Flex Beading Wire or products, we would love to share the spotlight and put you on centerstage for a bit. Check out these fun beading and unboxing videos our friends filmed with the Peace and Love Design Kit (Sold Out).

VIB is a great place to visit. It is an online bead gathering. It is a place to chat and meet new friends. It is a great way to stay social. You can learn a new tip or technique daily.
