Findings Worth Finding: True Colors

Have you seen the new Trios wire sets from Soft Flex? Looks inspiring! Here is the write up from their website:

"What is your perfect color? Apply color theory to your next design. Create jewelry with color mixing in mind.

Soft Flex® Company has made it easy to create with your heart instead of your head. Soft Flex® Trios™ were designed to show the vivid palette of emotion. The chemistry of nature and the glamour of the fashion world have been encapsulated in our Trios™ sets. Each set is comprised of three ten foot spools of .019 diameter Soft Flex® Wire. The wire spools were created using the classic colors of gemstones and take their name from the stone they represent."

And they are so clever, they had talented designer Jamie Hogsett work up a few designs, including this one and the matching earrings. You can find both projects and many more on the Soft Flex website.
Designer tip - Throw in a pop of a complimentary color, like Jamie did with the touch of teal played against the sunset shades of red, orange and yellow.

I love the Trios!

Not only are the colors amazing, but the feel of the beading wire is so flexible and silken, it's hard to believe that it's as strong as it is!

And it's eco-friendly!

I love me some Softflex Company beading wire!

The wire is fantastic looking and I really love the way the artist put together the jewelry with those funky rough stones! Looks great!
