Two beading projects from Facet Jewelry Box

I told you about Facet Jewelry Box back in November.  It launched in January, and they sent me two boxes.  However...

However, I ended up sick for about six weeks this winter, so I am just now getting around to doing new projects.  What a winter, huh?

So here's the first box and what I made from it!

It came with two projects: the really cute necklace and the briolette earrings.  I liked that all the materials came packed together in zip-locs that had the project name right on them.  I don't know about your work table, but mine is...messy is a kind word for it.  I made the necklace first, and I really liked that there were a few extra head pins in case of goofs.  That's easy enough to do when your're learning.  The instructions were easy to follow, and there is additional help online if you need it.  The instructions also include tips as to why the project works, which is helpful if you decide you want to make another using other materials.

I was not as thrilled with the earrings, but mostly because of style.  I'm just not a fan of the messy-wrap look, although I know it's popular enough.  I was also a little put off by the wire being sent wrapped on a small piece of cardboard instead of a small spool.  It had kinks in it, and I'm sure most beginners don't have a pair of nylon jawed pliers to straighten it.  The kinks aren't terribly noticeable, I don't think, but that was still a little disappointing.
