This review is from: Jewelry Basics Class In A Box Kit, Bright Glass (Misc.) I was interested in jewelry making but had no idea how and where to begin. I saw the Kit in Amazon and decided to give it a try. Thought it would give me a fairly good idea whether I would like to pursue my new hobby or not without spending much. The beads were pretty, bright and some extras were also given which is good for beginners like us. All my beads were drilled, the 3 in 1 tool was good. It’s nice that you can make ear rings, bracelet and necklace. Made one set and it came out beautiful.So why 4 star ?? The instruction was not good. You have to search YouTube for tutorial. My pin heads were bent and they just gave 2 pairs. For a beginner an extra pair is always nice since I spoiled my first pair of pin head while trying. The bracelet was stretched. Wish they had given one stretched and one wired, it would have been good for me to learn. No jump rings were given. And the beads were not labeled with the measurements i.e. what mm are they. I have no idea whether I want to order 4mm or 6mm beads for my next project.Overall it’s a good kit to buy if you want to start and learn jewelry making.BTW: I did not know so thought I would share with others that 3 in 1 tool means it has cutter, crimper and nose plier 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 79 of 81 people found the following review helpful A nice starter kit!!, April 25, 2012 By Michelle L. MacKinnon “Mikkilmack” (Wisconsin, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Jewelry Basics Class In A Box Kit, Bright Glass (Misc.) Picked this up to see if I could learn to make jewelry. Had made everything in the package within a little over 4 hours. The kit was complete and even had extra beads, great for someone like me that has a problem with dropping things. If you are thinking of learning how to make jewelery, this is a great starter to see if you really want to do it without spending a ton of money first. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 21 of 21 people found the following review helpful Great beginner kit!, February 26, 2014 By Jen D. – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Jewelry Basics Class In A Box Kit, Bright Glass (Misc.) I’ve wanted to try jewelry making but didn’t want to spend a lot of money and then figure out that I didn’t *really* want to make jewelry. This kit is perfect! There’s a good range in bead sizes which makes for a nice variation in the jewelry but still goes well together. The colors are very pretty – not too muted, not overly bold. The book is pretty basic. It shows the layout of each piece and then you reference the back for how to finish the closures for them. Once I saw the pictures, it was easy to figure out but I tend to be creative and am able to ‘just wing it’ when needed. If you’re looking for a very detailed explanation, this isn’t it. Even still, for the price, it’s a great way to start. I was able to do 2 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets and 1 necklace in just a few hours (with kids distracting me!) and I’m very pleased with how they turned out. Bottom line: if you’re a beginner and you’re looking for a way to ‘test the waters’, this is a great way to do it. If you need a very detailed instruction guide, this probably isn’t going to do it for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
