Jewelbox: October 2013

JewelBox is a monthly jewelry subscription where for $10 a month you will receive one piece of handmade jewelry.  When you sign up you fill out an online form with questions about your coloring, style and favorite fashion items.

This month I was so disappointed I ended up canceling my subscription.

Blue Keychain

Verdict
Total Miss
Instead of jewelry, I received a keychain.    It’s got a fairly large stone attached to a run of the mill keychain.  First, this is supposed to be a “jewelry” subscription.  A keychain is not jewelry.  Second, while $10 isn’t much, it’s more than I’d spend on a keychain.  Now, the stone attached is pretty and I may end up taking this apart and using it to make something else for myself, but I felt like this was a huge cop-out so while I usually give my subscriptions an extra chance after a truly disappointing box, I felt that this one was warranted.

So what do you think?  Is a keychain jewelry for your keys?  Should I have given jewelbox another month?

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure, was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
