Designher Kit Review - December 2013 - Canadian Craft Subscription Box
** This company no longer offers subscriptions.**
What is it? Designher Kit
How Much? $19 per month
What’s in it? 3 carefully curated DIY jewellery and accessories projects
I first learned about Designher Kit back in October when I came across their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo (read my first post here). I pledged funds immediately when I saw Designerher Kit is a Canadian subscription service!
Each month you receive a golden envelope containing all the materials needed to make 3 jewellery projects. You can specify your preference of gold tones, silver tones, or mixed tones. Instructions for the projects can be found online, at the Designher Kit Craft Table. The monthly subscription does not include tools, but you can purchase a DIY Starter Kit for $29, or $26 with a monthly subscription. The DIY Starter Kit includes 2 pairs of needle-nose pliers, a pair of round-nose plies, a pair of wire cutter pliers, 1 glue gun, 2 glue sticks, and 1 thread nipper.
I pledged enough funds to receive the DIY Starter Kit and one month of the Designher Kit service. As a bonus, all who funded through Indiegogo received an bonus 4th project.
The starter kit arrived first, in mid-December.I actually already have all the pliers required for jewellery crafts, but I decided to order the Stater Kit anyway. I thought it might be good to have an extra set in case I have a little wine and craft party with a friend or two.
My jewellery kit arrived towards the end of the month. This is what was inside the gold padded envelope. I selected mixed-tone jewellery.
Instead of project cards, they included marketing post cards. The top right one is a picture off all the projects included in my kit.
Spike Necklace. I signed up in October, as one of the first subscribers, so I expected to get the projects that were advertised. I don`t remember reading anywhere that the projects may be different than shown.When I found this necklace in my kit, I was rather surprised. The project itself is fine, but I am a bit disappointed to not get the cool Spike Necklace.
This is the bonus project I received. I like the bead colours I received and I'm happy I received it in silver tone.
I have mixed feelings about my first Designher Kit. There is some disappointment because of the necklace and purse charm/key chain, but other than those two complaints, I have no issue with my kit. I actually do really enjoy the pieces. The instructions were easy to find online and easy to follow. The projects were straight forward and perfect for beginners. Working on these four projects has rekindled my interest in jewellery making.
