Thank goodness it's Tuesday! We crawled over that dreadful Monday hump and the week has begun proper. Let's look at color beading wire today. Black and white has it's place in jewelry. Grayscale can be emotive and sophisticated. But there is nothing like color. Color is vibrant and alive. Color can turn a boring design into a pulsing and stunning piece that cannot be ignored. Color can highlight a wardrobe or take center stage. You should be stringing with color in mind.
At Soft Flex Company, we offer over twenty-five different color options. Soft Flex is a kaleidoscope of color! We have single spools of color in varying lengths and we have Trios Beading Wire Packs that come with three 10ft spools. The single spools of color are perfect if you tend to enjoy stringing with a theme or limited palette. They come in a variety of lengths and diameters. Trios are a great way to add a bunch of color to your jewelry kit with out buying a larger quantity.
We will look at just some of our color options. Color is important if you are showing the wire in your designs. Color will compliment your beads. If your beads are translucent, the color wire inside can make the tone of that bead sing. If you are designing an illusion necklace where a large portion of the wire is visible, color will really make your jewelry stunning. Your amazing bead collection deserves an amazing color wire.
How do you know what color to use? We named our wire after the gemstones we felt they best resembled or evoked. Copper, Dark Blue Lapis, Spinel – it is easy to shop our wire if you are looking for a color match. Let's look at a few!
