Braided Jewelry Inspiration by Kristen Fagan


Braids all the rage these days ... from hair to jewelry to accessories I see braids everywhere! I jumped on the braid train and created some pretty Soft Flex Wire braided necklaces. All three use the same technique - braiding 3 colors of .019 Soft Flex Wire with beads - yet, each one has it's own personality. 


Subtle beauty can be seen with the spinel, copper and antique brass design, there is a fresh beach vibe with the turquoise blue topaz, tanzanite and white quartz design and the bone, yellow lemon topaz and bronze design is given a touch of opulence with topaz crystals.

To have your own fun with braids check out these inspiring tutorials.










Have any of you made a braided look?  I would like try the Braided Gold Bangle bracelet and the DIY Charm Bracelet tutorials. Which braiding tutorial above inspires YOU the most?
