Darling, your work is done. It is time to kick up your feet and enjoy a sumptuous day of decadent ease. A flute of blushing rosé and a warm wind tussling your hair. Leave your worries elsewhere, this is quality time to spoil yourself. Fingers hooked on the stem of your favorite glass. Swirl the liquid and coat the inside. Inhale the delicate aroma and let that bliss tickle your senses. First taste and the sweet flavor delights the tip of the tongue. A spark of acidity wiggles down the sides of the mouth. Absolutely gorgeous. This is your day. Depressurize and enjoy the world on your own terms.

Sara will be doing a live broadcast on the Soft Flex Facebook page and YouTube Page, with the Rosè All Day Design Kit, on Wednesday, December 29th at 3pm (PT).

If you'd like to join us in the design challenge next month, buy this kit and challenge yourself to try something new and unexpected. If you are new to beading, this kit comes with findings, beads, wire, and surprises.

Our kits are great for skill building. We want our kits to feel challenging. We want them to be accessible for beginners and advanced designers alike, but we love to throw in elements that may seem difficult to test our beaders skills and make them think out of the box. We think jewelry is great when it is easy. But when you really have to engage your mind and process your materials and tools, we think that your jewelry has the potential to be life changing.

Our kits may be inspired by a colorway or theme, but they are meant to be creative interpretations. Imagination and innovation do not follow the rules. Expect the unexpected.

Supplies are very limited. Don’t miss out!

Finished Jewelry Designs From Our Woodland Walk Design Kit

Sara Oehler Designs

Sara is our official kit unboxer. She reveals the contents of each kit on the last Wednesday of each month. We have occasionally had a guest perform the honor but Sara is our kit ambassador. Sara opens each kit and makes jewelry. She does this without blueprinting a design or considering her options. We get to watch her use her jewelry designing talents to make something creative on the spur of the moment - a daunting task for anybody. It is always an inspirational watch. Sara is unscripted and her jewelry always turns out lovely, but you get a chance to watch her troubleshoot designs that are not laying right or flowing her she envisions. It is a learning experience for everybody. It can't be easy to make improv jewelry in front of a live audience, but Sara loves it!

Kristen Fagan Designs

Kristen is our Free Spirited jewelry designer. Kristen has an amazing live show on Mondays. Kristen is an artist in every sense of the word. She is a painter, a graphic designer, an author, a jewelry designer, and all around creative soul. Her show is named for her process. She does not over concern herself with a flaw in a design. If she makes a mistake, rather than get frustrated, she often incorporates the flaw into the work as a design element. She is a great teacher if you are a perfectionist and you tend to walk away from projects that are not turning out perfect. Learn how to accept a mistake and move on. Learn how to make a mistake and turn it into art! Make sure you catch this talented artist live!

Check out some of the fun unboxing videos our community filmed with the Woodland Walk Design Kit (Sold Out).

Rosanna Brafford Designs

Are you a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world? If you have fond memories of life in the big Barbie world, you are going to love this video! In the video,  Rosanna Brafford shows you how she creates jewelry for Barbie. This is a great gift idea if you have a collector in the family or children that love the iconic dream girl! In the photo below, you can see what a Woodland Walk style Barbie would look like. Fall fashion looks great on Barbie!

Rosanna Brafford is a talented designer and exciting artist. She has been a part of the Soft Flex Facebook group – VIB for years. We have watched her create a staggering number of new and beautiful jewelry designs. She is always innovating and always trying something unique. We were excited to hear that she is a new Jesse James Beads Design Ambassador and that she is making videos on YouTube.

Wendy Whitman Designs

Wendy Whitman hit a homerun with this lovely jewelry design. Want to get inspired? Watch Wendy's necklace tutorial and make your own Woodland Walk necklace for fall. In this video, Wendy considers her colors and figures out which beads she wants to use. She then lays her materials out, in a road map of sorts, so she knows how her design is going to look. Once her components are all laid out, she begins stringing her jewelry. This is a great video if you enjoy watching a designer at work. How an artist tackles their materials and finishes a beautiful piece of wearable art is always a watch process to watch! Make sure you like Wendy's video and subscribe if you learned a new trick or two!

Marcie Creates Unboxing

From Marcie Creates:

My name is Marcie Hall and I live in North Texas. I am a mixed media artist, jewelry maker, recipe creator and an avid Dachshund Lover (I have two rescues- Ginger and Cha Cha). I have been an artist my whole life. In my early art days, I would create prints, sculpture, ink drawings and oil paintings. About 25 years ago, I started making jewelry after a friend invited me to take an intro class at my local bead shop - I was hooked! I loved everything about jewelry making- the colors, textures and shapes really spoke to me. Soon I was making jewelry for family and friends and then everyone said, “you should sell your jewelry” and Marcie Hall Designs was born.

I recently started a YouTube channel called Marcie Creates to share my passion for beads, jewelry making, mixed media art and cooking. YouTube is a new venture - I am really enjoying it and would love for you to join me!
