Trios Beading Wire: Everything You Need To Know About Our Colorful Wire Collections

Every revolution begins with a single act of defiance. Soft Flex Beading Wire is leading the charge for dynamic colorways and brilliantly executed themes. We are not going to accept stale wire options. Life is much more colorful than that. Explore a rainbow of possibilities! Don't settle for simple wire colors - gray, black, bronze, and white are not going to make your jewelry glow.

String your next necklace or try something new. Trios sets are handy dandy to have around for crafts like kumihimoknitting, and macrame. Elevate your jewelry designs with an exciting splash of color!

4 Reasons Why You Need To Add Trios Beading Wire Collections To Your Toolkit:

Are you ready to move beyond simple jewelry designs? When we first began stringing necklaces, we always used a bland gray wire. We made sure every inch of that wire was buried under beads and very little was showing at the crimps. We thought the beading wire was ugly and detracted from the natural beauty of gemstones.

We realized the problem was that there was just no options for color. If we used a wire that paired well with our beads, our designs could be vibrantly colorful. Our wire could actually shine through the beads and enhance their beauty - Rose Quartz looks amazing with a pink color Soft Flex inside, it almost radiates color! We could also string with more techniques than just concealing the wire and hiding it. Why not show the wire? Soft Flex is wonderful for illusion necklaces. It is also fun for textured designs, braid several strands of beading wire for a unique look!

1. Trios Beading Wire Collections offer a rainbow of color for the price you would pay for a single spool

Do you want to string beads with colorful wire? Maybe you are just not ready to commit to a full spool of color - not everybody needs 30 feet of Pink Tourmaline color Soft Flex wire. Trios wire sets offer three 10 foot spools at a similar price that you would pay for a single spool. Three times the color for one low price! Your next jewelry piece can be gallery quality with only a small dent in the wallet. Affordable quality and color!

The three spools of color in each Trios collection can be used together or separately. Use your color how you want to use it. With so many options, you can pick and choose how colorful and unique you want your next necklace to be. Show your beading wire with illusion jewelry, float your beads with crimps and let long stretches of beautiful beading wire act as a showcase for your favorite sparkly stuffs. Make earrings with colorful wire - hoops or dangles. Check out our blog and YouTube channel for inspiration!

2. Trios Beading Wire Collections are an easy way to stock your jewelry making kit with affordable stringing options

If you are a multi-faceted crafter that loves to tackle projects of every variety, Trios are exceptional. We have met model railroad builders at beading shows that have admitted that our wire was their favorite choice for scale electrical wire (pretend, not actual) and cabling for tiny towns. We have met ship builders, model scale, that needed to purchase wire from us because they were getting in trouble stealing from their wife's jewelry supplies. There are a ton of crafting applications. Think out of the box! Beading wire is not just for beading. Trios are perfect for ornaments and holiday surprises!

Trios Beading Wire Collections for radiant knitting spool designs

From Kristen

I used 2 colors, 10 feet each to create this little 3" knitted piece. I did it as a test originally to see how much wire length you get this this style knit on a 5-pin knitting spool. If working on a smaller spool you will get a longer length with the same length of wire and knit style. I showed a quick demo using two wire colors and again using just one wire color. One color will be a little easier to start as the wire tension isn't as tight as when you work with two colors. 

Check out our how-to pages on the three styles of knit we like to work with:

Knit with Beading Wire - Style 1

Knit with Beading Wire - Style 2

Knit with Beading Wire - Style 3
