This Week's Project: Egg Hunt Trio Bracelet

This week's project incorporates the new soft flex trios that I won recently along with the gorgeous silver plated clasp by Jill MacKay.

These colorful faceted beads have not yet been featured here, but I bought them last weekend at Joann, Etc. I wanted to make something that included all of these colors because they make me smile when I look at how they complement each other.

The other goal I set for making this bracelet was to only crimp the soft flex trios wire to the clasp, not within the bracelet itself. This is why I chose the criss cross pattern, so the beads would move slightly, but would have their own little section by themselves.

This was a fun one to make and I don't think it's too early to begin wearing a little bit of spring!!

I hope you are all having a GREAT weekend!! :)

Eye candy and of course you can already wear spring! I'd play with that bracelet all the time, moving the beads back and forth.

That's clever how you did that! I love the spring colors and the clasp--the way you incorporated them shows off your talent in major portions! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Lisa! I'm finally back at my computer after CHA & Tucson. Can I show your design on my Soft Flex blog and link back to you? It is nice to hear that our wire is inspiring new and creative ideas. Yay!
