Too intimidated by wirework? Bored by stringing? Soft Flex Beading Wire combines the best aspects of beading thread and jewelry wire in one. Pliable enough to manipulate with ease, yet sturdy enough to hold its shape and maintain structure, the Soft Flex Beading Wire is a product that stands alone in the jewelry making arena. Soft Flex Company was kind enough to gift us a Trio of Soft Flex Beading Wire (That’s three spools!) and their new project book Show Your Colors, and we’re giving them away to one lucky winner!
Available in complementary color packs called Trios, Soft Flex Beading Wire comes in a variety of rich and vibrant colors. (You can also buy individual spools if you prefer.) The Trio pictured here, called Vitality, is made up of a spool each of Imperial Topaz, Red Jasper, and Citrine. The names of the colors sound almost as good as they look! The wire also comes in three size options–fine, medium, and heavy–so you can select the size that suits your needs best.
Not sure how to work with the Soft Flex Beading Wire? Not a problem! With the new project book Show Your Colors, you’ll never be short on design inspiration. The book contains 30 full-color, step-by-step tutorials complete with photos (and, interestingly enough, named after Cher songs, movies, and trivia), so it’s incredibly easy to follow along. Among this project guide’s vibrant pages, you’ll find strung projects, illusion designs, knit designs, woven projects, and more. It even provides a handy color chart (reminiscent of those little color cards that come with mood rings), explaining which color palettes evoke which emotions.
Here’s an example of a project using Soft Flex Beading Wire, the lush Mossy Forest Floor Necklace, so you can get an idea of what this stuff is capable of!
