How to make Soft Flex connectors, jump rings and dangles


Did you know that if you want to connect two items, you can use Soft Flex to make a connector? It is really easy and you can add another layer of color to your design.


In this tutorial, I will be using 8mm crystals and size 11/0 seed beads from Fusion Beads, 2 Soft Flex 2x2 mm crimp tubes, 2 inches of .019 Soft Flex in Blue Topaz, cutters and crimping pliers. I think that the pictures will speak for themselves, but if you do find that you have questions please don't hesitate to comment.

Thanks! There are many simple ways to add a bead, make a simple earring, etc with our beading wire. Hope you'll try it! :)
