Today I received the second official Beadhaul box (wish I'd signed up for the trial one but hey-ho). The theme was announced as stargirl a while ago and to be perfectly honest it was with some trepidation that I opened the box this morning. Stargirl seemed to me like something aimed at early teenage girls, but boy was I wrong!
You always get two pieces of card, a greetings type one (this one) which gives you more of a clue of what the theme is about. I love the inclusion of Ziggy Stardust here. The second one is a picture of all that should be in the box, just in case there's something missing
Aluminium wire - always good for essential works
Natural hermatite star beads - I love these. Grungy and galactic at the same time.
A silver plated chain. I'm glad they include some essentials in each box.
Crystal glass faceted bicone beads
Square copper seed beads - I've only ever seen the usual round beads seed bead wise so this is a nice change.
Acrylic star dust beads - I've had similar to this before but on a much larger scale. Smaller is definitely better.
Star charms - interesting there are so many of these.
Cat and moon charms - these are definitely becoming earrings!
Star charms - larger and a different colour than the other ones.
Planet charms - can also see earrings in these.
Star and moon spacer beads - I haven't used spacer beads much but I'm aiming to change that
Black acrylic faceted beads
Acrylic crackle beads - the black one is my favourite. Not sure why.
Ceramic round beads - I like these cos they look like Earth but I'm not sure what to do with them yet
Acrylic crackle beads - smaller than the others and in one colour only
Crystal glass teardrop pendants - these are HUGE. Far too big for earrings but would make a lovely centrepiece for a necklace. They remind me of mystic topaz.
I love this box - definitely up my street. I've got this week off so hopefully I'll be making some jewellery very soon. I'm also planning to make some cards this week, and work on my stitching of course.
If you are thinking of getting Beadhaul box yourself, it's available from Crafty Creatives, is released every two months (so six a year) and is £15 per box.
