We have two free jewelry making project ideas for you. A buoyantly happy Egg Hunt Necklace and a jubilant set of Egg Hunt Earrings. You are going to fall in love with these designs if you love spring colors.

Designing jewelry for the holidays is easy with our Trios Beading Wire Packs. We created our Trios for the designer that is color conscious. Each Trios pack has a theme: holiday, emotion, multi-diameter - we also have Trios that celebrate our monthly kits. If you loved a kit, you can grab the wire that most complements it.

Easter is a snap. Our Egg Hunt Trios were designed to make your holiday jewelry hop. Purple AmethystChrysoprase, and Turquoise - these glowing colors look as indulgent as the candy marshmallows in your cottontail's Easter basket. Designing jewelry for your ducklings will be easy this year!

Egg Hunt Trios are comprised of three 10 foot spools of Soft Flex Wire. You can design with a single strand of color or create a multi-strand design that showcases all three. The wire is colored and meant to be shown. You can expose large areas of the wire - illusion necklaces look great with color wire. You can also use our wire to make a translucent bead or stone radiate.  Rose Quartz looks amazing with our pink wires. Trios wire is meant to be shown and your jewelry will look stunning when the wire accents your beads.

Now is a great time to shop for color. You can visit our bead and gemstones and buy for  colorshape or type. Color is a fun way to find Easter beads. We have some delicious purple  beads and stones. Imagine Smoky Purple CZ Briolettes as happy little Easter eggs on your next necklace.
