My For The Makers subscription has been on hold for the past few months while we worked on renovations and such but it started up again with a bang yesterday! The June collection is called “Honey Nectar” which shows in the color pallet in the fabulous accessories and the luscious all-natural Wild Pollen lip balm (tinted with beet powder!).
Sadly like many box companies this is another one that is no longer in existence! Thankfully they have left all of their tutorials up for the foreseeable future on their website!
I’m really excited to make all of the items in this kit, but I had to figure out where to start. As soon as I opened my box this morning I tweeted a photo and tagged my ladies at @Forthemakers and asked their advice on which to start with. Apparently, I share a common brainwave with them because we both agreed on the perfect place to start
@AdrianneElayne the Linden Ring… it’s instant gratification!

This project was great – it didn’t require any fancy equipment and took less than 10 minutes to complete (plus drying time for the glue) and the stones are beautiful. It might be hard to tell from the picture but the large center stone is peach and the side baguettes are a very faint pink.
Check out the tutorial on the For the Makers site and
snag your own Honey Nectar collection. Since the site is no longer selling supplies here’s the closest I could find online!
- large rectangular cabochon rhinestone
- rectangle rhinestone setting
- baguette rhinestones
- baguette settings
- ring base (or other colors available here)
- e6000 glue
Oh and insider hint – instead of using a stick I just grabbed the smaller stones with my chain nose pliers to apply the glue without getting it all over my fingers (#protip)
I think I’ll make the Marmalade Bracelet next, but in the meantime I think I’m going to pair this pretty thing with a date night with the hubby! Any suggestions where to go?
