Rated 5 out of 5 by grbaseball Awesome jewelry making gift set, has everything!
I picked this item up on Black Friday. For $20 I found it to be a great value. I purchased the purple version and I loved that even the tool had a purple handle. I liked that it came with everything; cording, a tool, a bead board, findings, beads, and a booklet.. all for $20 bucks! I still can't believe the value and I was also very impressed with the quality. Its enough to make lots of necklaces, tons of pairs of earrings and have left overs! I swear I could make 20 pieces from this kit.
I bought this gift set for myself, but the gift set is like 2 feet wide and would be a PERFECT gift for a jewelry maker or someone that would want to learn more about jewelry making. I got the purple one but there are 5 other colors as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by coastcats2 Excellent Quality! Fantastic Value!
I bought 2 of these sets (turquoise and red) on Black Friday for $20 each, intending to donate them to the local Toys for Tots Christmas toy drive. I was expecting that the quality of the beads and materials would be kind of cheap but perfectly fine for a middle school age girl to learn how to make fun jewelry. However, I got them home and looked them over and I found that these sets are excellent quality. I've been making jewelry for years, and the materials in these sets could easily be incorporated into my own designs. The acrylic beads are very nice and brightly colored, the headpins/eyepins and jumprings are all great quality. The wire is a little thin, I would not recommend using it for heavier glass beads, but for use with the acrylic beads in these kits, it will be just fine. I was so impressed by these sets that I not only decided to keep the turquoise and red sets, but I went back and purchased this set in all the other colors available - pink, purple, blue and orange. You could not buy all the components in one of sets for double the price, so at $20 each, these sets are a fantastic value!!! I will just have to buy something else to donate to the kids -- I'm keeping these for myself!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mia25mia Awesome Jewelry Making Gift Set
I purchased this kit on Black Friday. It is definitely a good deal. You get a bead board, a jewelry making tool, gold and silver findings, gold and silver stringing material, and tons of beads and charms. There are a variety of beads in size and type. The pink kit contains pearls, pink, clear black, and solid black beads. If purchased separately, these items would total more than $20. I haven't used it yet, but I'm excited to use it. I purchased the pink kit, but I plan to also purchase the red and purple kit. This would be a great gift for an experienced jewelry maker or someone interested in making jewelry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by pswyers What a wonderful kit for the jewelry maker and for the beginner. I bough 4. 2 for myself and 2 as gifts. Love it, love it, love it!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hwanbi Slightly ok for beginners...
Don't know about others, but my experience with this product was not favorable. Although there were many beads, the quality is low. It did not take much for the beads to break. The wire that has been provided seems to be weak as well, so I can't really do too much with it. However, I tried it so I will be content with knowing that I do not like it, since you never know unless you try, right?
I think that the price should probably be lowered to $12.99 (no more than $15), and they should definitely take the "$70 Value" off the boxes!
Findings (some are ok)
Tool (is ok for use)
Low quality beads/wire
Rated 3 out of 5 by Meeko03 Good for beginners...but...
Nice value...but only includes enough stuff to make about 8 bracelets in gold and 8 in silver and a couple necklaces and earrings. The clasps were really cheap (not suitable for resale), and less than 5% of the small glass beads arrived broken. :( The 3-in-1 pliers were awesome though.
I probably wouldn't buy this again--but its nice to start out with and build on.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nurseglo The beads are very pretty. I would buy another. Good value for price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PHONEBELLE Nice starter kit
Love this Kit I have made a set of earrings, bracelet and necklace thus far. Kit comes with plenty of good quality beads and the directions are easy to follow.
Rated 4 out of 5 by wickedjoy Bought this as a Christmas present for our 12 yr old Grandaughter, she hasn't opened it yet but I'm sure she'll love it
Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous42 this is JUNK!
Let me start off by saying do not get this as a gift for someone that makes and sells jewelry. I got this as a gift for Christmas (I make and sell jewelry. specifically wire sculpture and wire wrapped pieces.) I do use a lot of beads, I cannot however reasonably use the beads that are in this. they are almost all plastic, and the ones that are not, are more or less junk too. the "beading wire is horrible it is nothing but metallic thread. it will not hold up, and will most likely cause reactions or turn ur skin green. There is a nearly identical pair of pliers sold at Walmart except they are a LOT better quality, (the "good" quality ones are fairly junky in and of themselves.) This would probably be ok for someone that does this as a hobby, or a child. (more likely a child) Needless to say, I will be returning it to the store in the morning.

I purchased this for my 10 year old daughter with some reservation based on the reviews and am very happy to say that she has really enjoyed this set. It comes with everything needed to make an assortment of jewelery. Right out of the box, my daughter was right into the thick of making things for friends and family and as far as I saw, she had no issues with tools or quality of components offered.
This set is a great craft for a tween!

Rated 5 out of 5 by gremis I bought as a gift for a 8 year old girl
I bought as a gift for a 8 year old girl for her next birthday in November. I hope she likes it and enjoys making the jewelry.
Rated 5 out of 5 by JUDYSMONEY THIS KIT HAD ALL I NEEDED TO GET STARTED MAKING JEWERLY, I LOVED THE COLOR OF THE BEADS AND THE VARIETY OF SIZES AND COLORS...GOOD VALUE FOR THE PRICE...
Rated 4 out of 5 by kimberly3413 Great starter kit.
This kit comes with everything you need to begin making jewelry. The only complaint I have is that the "book" it comes with is just a small pamphlet, but it is descriptive, so its not terrible. It just isn't a book.
Rated 5 out of 5 by crafter2484 Excellent kit and a tremendous value. The beads are all really nice, the tool works well, and the findings are nice as well. The wire is a bit thin, but well worth what you pay for it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by lilmamaof4 Great starter kit for making jewelry
