What Is Soft Flex Craft Wire?

Shop Craft Wire!

Shop Craft Wire!

Soft Flex Craft Wire is a high quality, permanently colored copper wire. It is resistant to scratching, peeling and marring. This is due to the special enameling process used to coat the wire to produce the wide spectrum of colors we offer. After the enamel is applied, the wire is then clear coated to prevent tarnishing. Bare Copper is the only wire in the line that is not treated. If antiques and old findings are your medium, Bare Copper will patina - perfect for making that new project look like an heirloom. Add a skeleton key to a bare copper wire for an instant vintage focal with your own signature wire wrap.

Quality Soft Flex Craft Wire is 100% lead and nickel free. There are no other metals used in the wire production other than copper and fine silver. The temper of the wire is soft. It can be tempered to half hard. If you need to harden up your wire for ear wires or other findings, you may use a nylon hammer or wire whacker to work harden your project. Using a nylon hammer or wire whacker will allow the wire to work harden without marring or flattening the wire. An exceptional design idea deserves a professional craft wire.

How To Make Flower Crowns With Soft Flex Craft Wire

This is a great project for a beginner. The crown is meant to look organic, which means that your wire wrapping does not have to be perfect. It does not even have to be symmetrical. Add messy wrap closures and texture the wire with your fingers. It is a playful project for playful designers that like to make their own rules when they make jewelry. Be fearless and make a crown that appeals to you!

Danielle Wickes, of John Bead, joined us for a beading party. She wanted to recreate a necklace that Kristen designed. Kristen's necklace graced the cover of the book that she and Sara wrote - Seed Bead Revolution. The book is an amazing collection of seed bead jewelry projects.

The focal of the necklace is a loop. You can add a dangle here or use a stylish connector. For her design, Danielle created a loop with Craft Wire. She used a mandrel to size the loop. If you do not have a mandrel on hand, you can always improvise - just wrap your wire around a object that is the size you want and then remove the wire and work harden it so it retains the shape. Get creative!
