2022 Fall/Winter Pantone Design Kit for TGBE Fall Fest

Help us raise money for a great cause! Buy a kit before December 28th, our next Kit Day, and 10% of your kit purchase will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America.

Make-A-Wish began with a child's dream. Chris Greicius, a seven year old boy with leukemia, wished that he would one day be a police officer. He was a superhero that wanted to nab the bad guys. As Chris was losing his battle with his grave disease, officers in the Arizona Department of Public Safety took it upon themselves to help this child realize his dream. Chris was sworn in as an Arizona DPS officer. He was then given a chance to ride along in helicopters and police cars. His beautiful wish was granted and Chris lost his fight, just two days later.

We wanted to dedicate our latest kit to a foundation that gives critically ill children a chance to live their dreams. This foundation grants an impactful wish to a deserving little one. Let's support this wonderful organization! Proceeds from your purchase will be donated. You can also consider volunteering or donating on their site.

Sara will be doing a live broadcast on the Soft Flex Facebook page and YouTube Page, with the Make-A-Wish Beading Design Challenge Kit on Wednesday, December 28th at 3pm (PT).

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!

Nutcracker Jewelry Making Kit Reveal

The fireplace is crackling with warmth and light. Snow is dancing in lazy sheets outside. Brother and sister sit in front of the television. The boy clutches his Nutcracker toy and watches as the courageous champion marches against the Mouse King on the screen. The girl holds a gingerbread soldier and gasps as heroic Clara distracts the rodent villain so the Nutcracker Prince can vanquish him. Their minds race with vivid fantasy. They imagine themselves in the Land of Sweets. The Sugar Plum Fairy hosting a lively recital to entertain them. After the spectacle ends, they are tucked into bed. They drift into slumber. The dancing bell rings of a musician playing the celesta echoes in their dreams.
