Soft Flex Wire - Exposed!

Here's another great Make and Take I did at CHA. At the Soft Flex booth, they were using coloured beading wire to create earrings. Don't they look great?



I've only ever used Soft Flex as a stringing wire before but this make and take shows that Soft Flex beading wire can be so much more than just a stringing material and with colours such as Tanzanite, Lapis and Blue Topaz why would you want to cover the beading wire up with beads. This project uses 49 strand wire and as its name suggests it is both soft and flexible. It really is a lovely material to work with.


The colours I used are from the Trio set called Tranquility. I won't go into all the details of how to make these earrings because you can get the instructions on the project sheet from the Soft Flex website.


If you'd like to have some fun playing around with exposed wire (sounds a bit dangerous, doesn't it?) check out some of the other projects from their project library.


That's all from me today but I'll be back again soon,

Happy crafting!
