Another month (two actually) and it's time for a Beadhaul box! The theme of this box? Pastel Fantastic!
This is a picture of all you get in the box.
The description of the box - I have to admit I had my reservations about pastel.
Rose gold jump rings. Nice addition - it's a colour I don't have.
Acrylic cubes - don't really like these.
A silver plated enamel chain.
Rose gold eye and head pins - nice that they included both.
A gold plated bracelet chain - pleased that we have a bracelet chain
A copper ball chain - love these things.
Ice cream charms - another thing I don't really like. That being said, I do have an idea of how to use them for somebody else. Truth be told, if I liked everything in every box I'd never gift any jewellery to others!
Crystal glass bicone beads
Natural grade B agate. Beautiful colour and a nice weight to them.
Earring hooks - never get enough of these.
Velvet necklace - never thought the findings could be pastel! Cool idea.
Japanese twisted bugle glass. These are pretty and reflect the light well.
Balloon charms - love these! Look vintage and will be made into a pair of earrings. I love all things hot air balloon.
Robots - so cute!
Enamel triangle charms - couple of them are pushing it a little on the pastel thing, but doesn't matter because they are lovely.
Enamel clock connector - makes me think of Alice in Wonderland. I wonder if I could incorporate this into a headband/hair accessory?
Wooden chevrons. This is the modern part of pastel they were talking about and it's brilliant. Fresh and vibrant, they would make beautiful geo style jewellery. I can see a few necklaces here.
Wooden triangles - they have a tutorial with these that I may copy.
Last but not least, another wooden chevron and a wooden zigzag. Both a great addition to the box.
First thoughts are positive, aside from a few items which I have mentioned. I think that the balance of findings vs themed items are better in this one than the last one. Basically, the more charms the better!
Before I sign off, here is where I am on the Middle Earth stitch. I'm on holiday till 1st July so it's back to the Disney stitch after that.
