Braiding with wire

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Its been a while since I last braided with wire and I've never wire braid a ring until today. This is a "training ring" before getting into serious business :) ....Ehm! actually I was not sure if I can make a braided ring or not therefore this "test ring" :)


Why so many spirals? Actually, I don't know what to do with the wire ends. There are six of them. Naturally, I'd go for spirals as they are the easiest and cute too.
Overall, the ring looks fine and surprisingly very comfortable on the finger.
I will do better job next time around :)

Sometimes wire has a mind of it's own! Nice work

Beryl, practice makes perfect so should do more of that :)

Thanks Millie, they can be very stubborn sometimes ;)
