arent my hands wrinkly!!!
I am sure its a little unbalanced but I do think I like the idea of this one. I am not sure about the bead as it is a white quartz with a mystic coating on, (you can see it more in the top photo) ~ its the hole, it is very transparent and very obvious you can see the wire showing through which I don't think I like!!
This one I used the basket weave, this is a bit harder to do as you work with 3 main wires but I got the hang of it in the end. The main wires I used 1.25mm (18ga) copper wire and wrapping/weaving wires were 0.4mm (26ga). Its quite difficult to finish using the 1.25mm as it doesn't lie so flat as the thinner wires. I might try 1mm wire next time to see if it is just a strong and stable as the 1.25mm. I love trying the different weaves I especially loved this one.
I have made a few other rings since this one but I haven't taken pics of those yet. And I am still working on a framework for a cabochon, cant let you see that one as it could be a tutorial for magazine. I am working on other tuts right now as well have been given a theme to work on, so off now to do more research!
Catch up with you all soon.
