Gina’s Picks x Eureka Crystal Beads – August 2021

Shop Gina’s Picks | Coupon Code: 10opal (10% off $50+ , exp. 12/31)

Hey beautiful! For today’s video I have partnered with Eureka Crystal Beads to bring you “Gina’s Picks” for August 2021! While there are some similarities here to an official ECB collection launch, think of this monthly picks concept as a mini collection, of sorts, in which I select some of my favorite products to highlight for the month, which are curated around a monthly theme. These monthly picks will happen on the months where a ECB collection is not being released, and will bridge the gap between those highly anticipated events.

The jewelry in this category may be sold, but I am usually able to recreate similar designs, upon request. Viewing out of stock jewelry pieces also provides a helpful archive of beading inspiration, and a way to see past jewelry creations that have travelled to new homes. Many pieces include materials from past bead subscription boxes that I have unboxed on my YouTube channel.

I am humbled to say that the pieces found in this category have been shipped to satisfied customers in practically many corners of the world!
