Hey beautiful! Curated Bead Box, a division of DollarBead.com, sent me their latest monthly diy jewelry making box to share with you. For only $20/mo shipped (US Only), you are guaranteed to receive 10-12 items, including: 8 strings of glass beads, bags of seed beads, polymer clay, or lampwork beads, metal charms/pendants, and a findings starter kit.
Inside December's Curated Bead Box
This month’s Curated Bead Box theme is The Old West. The colors are a mix of olive greens, dusty pinks, and mauve. Overall, I get a romantic, secret garden feel from the color scheme. Perhaps this mix is depicting cacti and their showy pink blooms. Maybe it’s reminiscent of the ladies fashion of the day; layers of ruched fabric and lace (or maybe I am looking way too far into this. Ha!).
This box may not be one that I would sign up for to meet my specific beading style, outside of being able to share the contents with you all; however, I really appreciate the unique color combinations which are put together each month. Every box contains a combination of colors unique from the boxes before it, and it’s a great way to build up a stash of a variety of basic glass rounds in an array of colors.

My thoughts: I would especially recommend this box for newer beaders who are interested in learning basic stringing. If you know someone who would like to start learning how to make beaded jewelry, I think this box would also make a great gift. Each box contains items in a coordinating, curated color palette, and comes with basic stringing materials and findings, so you have just about everything you need to get started.
Style: Bead-stringers who primarily want basic round shapes.
