I’m doing something I’ve never done before today. A few weeks ago I received a little package from Soft Flex. In case you don’t know, Soft Flex is a company that makes beading wire. I was so excited to receive this package and I waited until I could share opening it with you all.

I used three of the gold flowers to make a focal for the necklace and then I strung some of the beads using the Soft Flex wire which, by the way, is amazing.
I also made a pair of small earrings as I didn’t want to detract from the necklace.
Jewellery I’m Wearing
In this week’s tutorial I’m wearing my Forever Summer Turquoise Necklace.
The earrings I’m wearing are made from the dangles on the necklace. I just added an ear wire to the wire wrapped loop.
I don’t have a tutorial for the bracelet but I can share with you the technique that I used to make it. I used some 8x6 faceted glass rondelles, 6mm round turquoise beads, 6mm silver beads and some daisy spacer beads.
