Howdy (Blog) Partner!

A couple weeks ago, I received an email from Cousin Corp, asking if I'd like to be a blog partner, and receive free beads from their Prima Bead line. At first I thought it was spam, or some sort of trick, but it looked like a legitimate email. So I answered  the email. Turns out it was all for real!! Pinch me!

I received my goodies this week. There are beads, chains, findings, tools, an instruction booklet, a catalog, and a nice letter! This set is called "Class in a Box". Looking through the catalog, I see there are other versions. I'm so glad they picked the one with filigree and antiqued brass to send to me (we all know how I struggle using shiny silver!) Of course, the instruction booklet is meant for a beginner, to recreate the exact pieces on the cover. Those designs are very nice, but I'm planning to go my own direction ;-)

I can't wait to get started!

Plus, there's a bead mat included! I needed a bead mat - how did they know?  

As a blog partner of Prima Bead, I guess I'm supposed to say that I was given these materials and no money exchanged hands - not sure what the rules are. I will post photos of finished jewelry, when I use this kit. Stay Tuned!


  1. Very cool! One of those types of kits is how I got my start

  2. Lucky you! It looks like a great kit!

  3. Cool! Cool! I will be watching to see what you made.

  4. How fun! Lucky duck. So nice to get recognition for your jewelry. Can't wait to see what you make.

  5. Hi Cynthia,
    I too received and email and just got my box this past week. I will be doing a blog post about it soon. My kit is a little different from yours, but like you I plan to make my own designs with the pieces in the kit. Happy creating I can not wait to see what you created with this wonderful kit.

  6. Lucky you!!! I had applied to be part of their creative club, but got a pair of pliers and a rejection letter :)
