About January's Theme
It's almost 2020, so lets celebrate with a tribute to the 1920's!
With all the glitz and glamour of Art Deco, we ring in the New Year, flapper style!
We're going big with lots of bold pearls, crystals, rhinestones, faceted glass and fringe, with colors of champagne, peachy gold, aqua blue, antique white and black.
This is our LAST BOX, so get one before they're gone forever!
Supplies are very limited. All boxes are due to ship before Christmas on December 19th & 20th.
What's in a Box?
Because we are dedicated to sourcing vintage and hard to find beads, no box will be the same from the next.
What you can expect to find is a collection of 8-10 baggies of beads (enough to create a few pieces of jewelry), all based on the theme chosen for the month. You will also receive an info card describing the theme and the inspiration behind it.
Themes are inspired by certain time periods, seasons, holidays or general vintage nostalgia with a focus on mid-20th century styles.
All of our packing materials and info cards are made with recycled paper and earth friendly.
Some of our signature beads:
Glass Beads, Vintage Acrylic Beads, Gemstones, Faux Pearls
Seed Beads, Crystals, Metal Beads, Wood Beads, Vintage Findings
We often include some unique vintage beads such as cloisonne, mother of pearl, bakelite, pendants, lockets, and finished vintage jewelry such as clip-on earrings and brooches.

"Vintage bead box is my favorite subscription, the beads are always unique and high quality. There is always something in each box to spark my creativity."
Love the different types of beads and wonderful colors, these beads are certainly one of a kind, you can't find them anywhere else.
"I love Vintage Bead Box. I've been a subscriber for almost a year and it's the box I look forward to the most each month. Each month's theme is a careful selection of beads--combinations of glass, wood, acrylic, and metal. Sometimes there's also vintage clasps, pins, and other findings. Each box has that extra something special. I love every one I've received! You will too!"

About the Company
I'm Alexis Sixel, the owner, operator and only employee of Vintage Bead Box! If you have any questions regarding vintage beads, subscription issues, shipping or even website snags, I'm the one to contact :)
I have over 20 years experience in the jewelry industry, and have been a jewelry artist for most of my life. The initial idea for Vintage Bead Box came about after a crazy idea I had in the Spring of 2016. With the mass of beads I've been collecting over the years, and the unhealthy obsession I have for subscription boxes... why not combine the two?! Vintage beads are often hard to come by, and when you find them, the prices are usually off the charts. Scouring flea markets, bidding in estate sales and working with reputable suppliers, I'm able to supply jewelry artists and crafters with hard to find and unique beads in one convenient monthly package.
I've always loved vintage furniture, architecture, and of course the clothes, but it took a trip to my Great Aunt Adela's vintage jewelry shop to really get inspired by vintage jewelry. La Chatelaine in Houston, Texas, was an overwhelming wall to wall display of sparkling elegance and curious antique wonder. Her collection covered all styles, from cute cherry shaped Bakelite brooches to fine gold and diamond jewelry sets fit for a queen. Her passion and knowledge for all things vintage were at an expert level. She was, and is, truly an inspiration.
Back in 2010, I was gifted with several cases of beads from my Great Aunt's estate. Those beads eventually became the foundation for Vintage Bead Box, and the launch of my own vintage bead collecting. There are so many wonderful and creative people who are just as passionate about giving vintage jewelry a new life, and I'm honored to be a part of keeping vintage alive in the 21st century.
