This is a commissioned piece. The technique used here is the Herringbone Weave, made popular by Eni Oken. She has a free tutorial on this weave at her site.

Thank you Yati. You are doing great with your herringbone weave as seen in your new dragonfly. No special tip actually. I actually follow Eni's tutorial. While wrapping, I just make sure that the wrap is tight and neat before I wrap around the shank.

Hi Mei,
Couldn't find the herringbone weave on Eni Onken's site. Could you post a link? Thanks.

Hi Lunita! there are available tutorials on prong ring. I will have to search for it first and email you later. The herringbone is on the ring shank. I hope this answer your question. By the time you get my free tutorial, it should be easy :)
Yes?
