Hey beautiful! I am back with the September 2021 Darling Bead Box; a monthly bead subscription box that ships world-wide from Sweden. I am excited to share this with my international friends, especially, since your choice of beading subscriptions is typically much more limited, and/or the shipping and customs fees are far too cost prohibitive. Feel free to share your thoughts about this new subscription down below.

Darling Bead Box Info
Darling Beads is a small Swedish company, whose owner saw the need for another European bead box option. Boxes ship World-Wide, on the 5th of each month, at a flat rate of 7€ (~$8 USD). They offer a one-time box, a month-to-month subscription, and three and six month options. The price of the box ranges from 27€ to 29€ (~$31.50 – $34), depending on the length of subscription you choose. Contents include up to 20 items, which range from gemstone and glass beads to focals and findings. Reach them at firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional questions.

Do I recommend the Darling Bead Box? Yes - for the right person!
My thoughts: I think this is a very well-rounded beading subscription because it comes with a wide variety of different beads – gemstone and glass, findings, and other interesting components. The best part of this box for those located in Europe is that this box ships from Sweden. In many cases beaders located outside of the US do not have as many bead subscription options, or the cost and customs fees make the boxes too expensive. This is a great option for those who are more limited in box availability.
Cost: slightly high for US (with cost of shipping)
Skill: all skill-levels, beginners and advanced alike
Style: mostly stringing, plus some weaving
