I came across a tutorial in a blog I follow which gives great tutorials for jewelry making. I was a method of weaving 5 strands of rubber together to make a kind of celtic braid. So I though I would give it a try in copper wire. My first attempt wat this one done in 0.8mm wire, I never really gave mutch thought as to how I would finish it offso it is a bit messy looking.
With a bit of tweeking I think this weave could be really nice, It also has the potential to add some sparkle to it. I need to wait and buy more wire though before I can play with this one a bit more though.
The second one was made with 10 strands of 0.4mm wire and I pulled the weave tight for a different look.
It's not the clearest picture but you can see the weave. This turned out really delicate looking, I would love to use this to make baangles for my girls but I have to figure out a way of securing the clasp a bit better, 0.4mm wire is not the most secure wire in the world.
Stitching wise I feel as if I actually made a bit of progress on sister angels. I am about a third of the way down the first page, getting there slowly but surely.
I may decide to take tonight off my studies and work a little more on this before I start back studying next week. Its an assignment week next week too (argggghhh!!) so I think an extra night relaxing wont hurt in preparation for my busy week ahead lol...
I couldn't resist posting this picture of my new doggy Rory. It's just the cutest pic of him and makes me smile whenever I see it.
He looks as if he has a huge cigar or something hanging out of his mouth, its one of those chew sticks that help keep teeth clean but he wanders about with it like this for ages before he eats it.
Thanks for looking, take care x
