Wire Woven Bead Cap - Yippy! My first

Saturday, September 22, 2007




Thanks to Iza Malczyk, now I am able to make this wire woven bead cap. If you check out her website, you will find beautiful woven wire jewelry of various designs. They are all so very beautiful.
Her tutorial on this wire woven bead cap is very easy to follow but to actually make them is not as easy as it looks.
It took me about 4 hours to finish this small piece. Phew! Its tedious works but the end result is worth the time. The wire broke at several places during weaving but fortunately they are not that visible and I managed to hide them well :)
Hopefully with practice, the time required to make this type of wrapping will be shortened.

Wow... it looks great! How do you get the bead to stay inside it?

Its the bigger wire at the center, inserted from the top of the cap and through the bead. To hold it in place, bend a loop at the bottom of the bead.
