Sample by Janice Parsons

Waking up to the soft pinks and pale lavenders of clouds partially obscuring the morning sun is a spectacular way to start your day. And because we love the ease of making this design, we decided it belonged in a Limited Edition Kit. In Float Away, each section can be made with random abandon or laser precision…it’s up to you!

Please note, the vintage stone "paver" beads used in this sample are no longer available. We suggest trying Czech Rectangles in their place...see how Janice uses this shape in her version of the Soft Flex Float!

The true beauty of this 5-strand design is that you can be random with varying lengths or make something very symmetrical and it all looks great! Janice began each strand by cutting 5 lengths of Soft Flex 24 inches each. She started with the strand that has the Rhodonite Paver in the center and built out in each direction. The finished length is approximately 17-18 inches. Whether you use the Tierra Daisies spaced around each bead or string them haphazardly, you’ll find the results are wonderful.
