Wire-weaving is my latest passion in my ever-evolving style and this particular combination of thick and thin hammering, exquisitely symmetrical and layered wire-bending...
...combined with wrapping revs the machine-like precision-monster in me like nothing else. I just now bought Sarah Thompson's 3-hour video course via Pearl Blay's Beading Gem blog and I cannot wait to start working my way through this tut.
Go to Pearl's blog, make a comment and enter the draw to win the free video tutorial. For me, I'm too impatient (and not reeeeally very lucky) so I clicked the link on Pearl's blog and -- whoo hoo! -- bought the course for half price at Craftsy. I'm currently mulling over buying Sarah's book... but I probably will.
Thanks for looking!
Cool! Wire weaving is so much fun!! I followed a few short tutorials by John Farris. You should look him op on youtube. He makes amazing pendant! I wish you a lot of fun creating! ;)
Just checked out John Farris. Thank you, Geeske! I had never run across his work. I am gobsmacked by the weave on top of weave on top of weave -- the texture he achieves. There are the ones there where he incorporates rhinestone necklaces into the designs. Wow. I just happen to have a couple of broken vintage rhinestone necklaces in my stash...
