The finished product!

I really like the simplicity of this bracelet and the colors – plus gold jewelry is my favorite!

FYI – almost all projects I’ve done from For The Makers require jewelry tools – pliers, wire cutters, etc.

Golden Rod Necklace Materials

I think I’m spoiled by Project DIY – I want all my finished jewelry pieces to look super professional! This necklace wasn’t my favorite – but maybe I’ll like it more when the kinks come out of the thread!

Botanical Mini Notes Materials

These notes turned out so cute! I love the botanical print for the mini envelopes, and I was just so happy to see that the non-jewelry project this month didn’t involve sewing!

Verdict: I like For the Makers – I think the projects can be a little bit more involved than other DIY project boxes, but this month’s projects were pretty easy for a novice like me!

  2. Hi Liz!
    Thanks for posting about the projects. Happy to hear you liked them! We provided a tip on the Goldenrod Necklace tutorial to wet the thread and let it dry first to get the kinks out! Hopefully that will help.

    We also have a jewelry tool starter kit available in our shop for those that are in need of the tools to make the projects.
