Horseshoe Wrap Bracelet
Each project comes in it’s own package, and on the lining of the package are the basics:
They also have a really nice iPad app that I used for step my step instructions – or you can use their Guides website.
The finished product! This bracelet probably took about 30 min for me to make and I love it!
Equestrian Charm Necklace
This might be my favorite finished product in the September box. I never crafted anything with metal jewelry before, so I couldn’t believe how professional this ended up looking!
Suede Tassel Keychain
The picture they included of this keychain had different color tassels, but I decided to mix all the colors together for a more muted and uniform look.
(Free with coupon code MJDIY5). If you don’t have jewelry tools like these I definitely recommend getting the free starter kit – I needed these tools for every single project. (Plus it’s free!)
Verdict: I paid $30 for this box and starter kit – and I’m very happy with the quality of the items I received. All the projects featured leather or suede material, and the metal pieces were good quality too. I also really like the design of all the projects – they’re definitely on-trend in my opinion, and all items I can’t wait to use. (I’m secretly hoping to get a compliment on one of the pieces so I can say “Thanks, I MADE IT!”)
