Did you join us for Kit Day this week? Kit Day is the last Wednesday of each month. On that day, we reveal the contents of our latest mystery kit and introduce our newest one. This time, we entered an underwater kingdom for our latest themed mix of jewelry making supplies. Escape the blazing heat. Life is much better down where it's wetter! This week, we also had a big bead sale. If you would like to save a good chunk of change on gorgeous gemstones, visit our sale before Sunday - you might even win a Soft Flex Shopping Spree!
We had a Live Sale on Tuesday. Our Live Sales are typically a curated selection from Mike Sherman's personal beads or beads we have collected but never put up for sale on our site. They are always full of rare finds and exciting artisan beads. A normal sale runs from the live show on Tuesday and closes for bidding on Thursday night, at midnight. We wanted to shake things up and explore forgotten beads on our shelves. All of the beads on this sale are currently on our site (if they have not sold out). If you wanted to buy gemstones from us, make sure you check out the video and get your coupon code to save 30% OFF!
Sara unboxed our Under the Sea Design Kit on Wednesday. This kit contains a superb mix of water themed beads and supplies. Perfect for spring and summer jewelry. Celebrate the warmest time of the year with an aquatic flair! Join us for Kit Day. This company holiday is a celebration of creativity. We unbox our recent kit and make jewelry live. We introduce our newest themed kit. And our VIB community on Facebook posts their kit jewelry. It is pure inspiration and fun. We welcome all beading skill levels and share our love of jewelry!

If you love gemstones, make sure you watch our Live Sale video. We explored the beads in our online inventory this week. We will be back to our regular format for our upcoming Live Sales. Sara wanted to show off a variety of the beads we carry on our site. Some of the beads were added years ago and the photos are not always the best representatives of the actual product. Sara showed what you could expect if you saw our stunning inventory in person.
If you have never joined us for a Live Sale, you are missing out on something truly special. Each month we offer a Live Sale that features gemstones and findings from our offline inventory. This sale is comparable to visiting our gallery and seeing an intimate tour of all of the goodies we have acquired during our thirty plus years of business and travel.
We also offer a Live Sale that is filled with rare stones and artisan beads from Mike Sherman's personal collection. Mike is a company co-founder and creative innovator. He is part of the reason Soft Flex Beading Wire is a stellar as it is.
Hurry! As with our other Live Sales, these sale items can clear the shelves fast!
