I don't know if I mentioned this before or not, but I am one of Soft Flex Company's "Spotlight On..." authors for 2009. For my article this month, I decided to explore the creative possibilities in the company's new, wonderful Trios wires. I designed this necklace, "Secret Garden", using Trios Renewal, with its three beautiful shades of green. My intent here was to create the image of a delicate, hanging garden. Please go here to read my article and to see the other two designs I created using this wire.
I hope my work inspires you to try out Trios for yourself. If that isn't enough, you may want to check out the Flex Your Creativity Beading Contest that Soft Flex is holding, where entrants use Trios wire to create their own beautiful designs.
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
