My box included this welcome note and coupon for $10 off a multi-month subscription or 20% off items in her shop! I love the southwest theme on her packaging.
My piece was secured in its own jewelry box. I was super excited to receive this box because the customization survey and follow-up questions were quite extensive! For the record, I stated that:
* I wanted copper chainmaille
* I gave the sizes I would prefer for bracelets, necklaces, and rings
* I chose hefty and bold (over dainty / delicate)
* I’m not a fan of cuffs
* I would like natural stone accents (and although she didn’t ask I stated I would prefer blue or green or something in that spectrum)
* In our emails, I also stated that I like boho chic and rock star styles! This is not something she asked, but any subscriber would have the opportunity to give her any additional details they wish.
This was my first glance inside the jewelry box. I immediately got excited to see copper and green accent stones! Just FYI, all of her pieces are made from copper or steel (or bike chain? I’m not 100% sure what bike chain is made from) and in a variety of styles, including Industrial Chic. I’ve been curious to try copper jewelry for a while, but Industrial Chic definitely piqued my interest! It’s just not something you see every day!
This is my beautiful bracelet! It’s exactly the length I specified for bracelets!
Here’s a closer look at the bracelet. The green stones are malachite, and they look so beautiful against the shiny copper. I absolutely love it! Also, if you look over to the right of the picture, you will see (by the clasp) a little copper charm with her logo stamped on it. Adorable!
Here’s an even closer look to see the detail of the chainmaille. This chainmaille weave is called a flower chain, and it’s a series of mobius rings linked together, which fits perfectly with my request for boho chic.
She also included this little card on how to care for copper jewelry. I’ve never owned copper jewelry before, so this will definitely be helpful!
Additionally, I received an email from the owner asking me if I liked my piece. She let me know that if I were a subscriber, she would be following up with me to see what, if anything, I might like changed for next month.
Verdict: This box was a complete win for me. I love my bracelet! I’ve never owned chainmaille before, either, so I was happy to have the chance to try it. I’ve noticed that there’s not a lot of jewelry made from real materials in subscription boxes, generally speaking, so this is really something different. I’m wearing my bracelet right now and it has such a nice feel and weight to it. I’m really impressed by the level of customization that goes into each piece, and the level of customer care. I even think the packaging is great! As far as value goes, $25 for this piece and everything that has gone into it is a steal.
