We have a busy day on deck. If you love making jewelry, you are going to want to follow along. This morning, we released our latest design kit - the Golden Gate Design Kit. This kit is full of the iconic colors of the world's most famous bridge. You are going to love this themed collection of goodies! Also on our shelves, we followed up our Unicorn Sparkles theme with a Bead Mix, a Bead Strand, and a brand new Trios Beading Wire color collection - if you enjoyed our Unicorn Sparkles Design Kit last month, you will want to grab these new products.
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 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.
Did you buy our Tucson Sunset Design Kit? It was an amazing little package that celebrated the magical skies above this sleepy Sonoran city. Today we are looking at jewelry designs created with that kit by staff members James Browning, Kristen Fagan, and members from our Facebook group – VIB. The designs from our VIB group are incredible. It is fun to see how diverse the finished jewelry designs are – they were all created from the same materials, but creative minds love to wander down different avenues. We think they really knocked it out of the park.
If you have not joined our Facebook group yet, do so! We would love to have you. Our VIB group is full of talented jewelry designers and crafty folk. We love to foster the spirit of acceptance and inspiration. There are always lively discussions about the beading and the craft. There are giveaways and stuff you will not find any where else. We love active participants but do not require you to chat. If you do feel chatty or would like to hear some opinions about your Soft Flex strung jewelry, you can post your images and get feedback.
The Golden Gate Design Kit is a love letter to 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. Celebrate the mystery of this Art Deco masterpiece with this stunning design kit.
Join us for a live broadcast on the Soft Flex Facebook page, with the Golden Gate Design Kit, on Wednesday, September 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!
James Browning Designs
Our Tucson Sunset Design Kit was a mystery themed kit we created to celebrate the gorgeous sky above this wonderful city. Every night, the sky darkens into deep reds, mystical purples, and stunning gold hues. The sun always retreats with a magical departure in this Arizona city. If you love the mystery of the American Southwest, this design kit was perfect for your jewelry designs! Unfortunately, this kit is sold out. But, if you hurry, you can still buy the Bead Mix that was included in this kit.
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!

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!
