Beaded "Colors of Faith" Bracelet Craft Kit
Keep the Faith!
These bracelets came out much better than I had anticipated. They sold extremely well. The only problem I had was that I was short on one or two colors so was only able to make 10 or 11 bracelets.

The first Sunday of December is our annual Advent Craft Day in lieu of Sunday School. We have about 25 tables that kids (and adults, too) go to make crafts. I had this craft at my table and it was a big hit with all ages. This year I'll probably order twice as much!
Thanks, Oriental Trading Company!

Poor Quality Construction -- don't buy!!!!
I purchased a dozen of these bracelet kits for our annual mother/daughter banquet at our church. We had lots of fun making the bracelets. However, after a few wearings -- the color began to disappear around the beads. Apparently they are PAINTED glass beads!!! Now, there is no color around the center of the beads and they look awful. You get what you pay for here, poor quality materials. I will definitely look elsewhere next time.

I bought these kits and instead of making bracelets I used the pieces along with some dove charms and the Metal Book Markers to create colors of faith book markers for friends and they turned out really cute. In a couple of packs some of the beads were stuck together, but I was able to carefully seperate and still use them.

Beautiful bracelet and very easy to make
In between studies for my church community group I like to have a special event for my ladies. I had a dinner and a movie night and we created these bracelets while we watched the movie. We had a great time and the bracelets were beautiful. As in other reviews, there were some packets that were short of some parts but we had plenty for my ladies. The key to the stretch cord is to pull it VERY tight. I also purchased the variety pack of crosses and let each lady choose the cross she liked to make her bracelet unique. Loved this project and have had many compliments on it. It's also a great conversation starter to explain what the colors of faith represent.

beautiful color and clarity
I have chosen not to use the elastic cording when I join these and I add a tiny cross. They have been wonderful gifts for my friends and family and I have sold a few for other people's loved ones. I love the little note that tells what each bead represents. Truly a blessed gift.

Great gift, fun, and value
I bought this to make Easter gifts for some friends and family. We personalized each one with the receiver's initials and a special charm for each. Everyone loved to have something made specially for them and they look really well made. Test one I made for myself is holding up really well. Even with my 3 yr old son tugging on it regularly.

Very, very nice
I ordered several kits and this was by far the nicest, The beads are lovely and I was pleased at how nice the bracelet looked. Have used it in different ways am proud of how they look.

Not like they used to be
I bought this same kit last year and was pleased with the bracelets that I made and gave them out. This year I was going to do the same but would never give these to anyone. The glass beads are ugly and the "metal" spacers are cheap plastic.

Pretty, but not durable
These turn out beautifully and can be worn with just about anything, but if you're looking for something to wear regularly, this is not the way to go. The color coating on the beads wears off after only a handful of wearings.
I liked the idea enough that I replaced the glass beads Swarovski crystal beads in order to have a longer lasting version for myself.
