ELYTRA WIRE WEAVE NECKLACE
Wire weaving is a set of techniques, similar to basket weaving, where you wrap thin weave wires around thicker base wires to create patterns and textures. You can then use these wire-woven strips to make all kinds of things, such as the framework to turn a cabochon or bead into a pendant, earring dangles, bracelets, bails, and the like.
The ELYTRA WIRE WEAVE NECKLACE begins with 10 base wires. These are gradually woven together to create each centerpiece section of the necklace. The wire-woven piece is then oxidized to give it an antique sheen. Then the centerpiece is attached to an antique copper chain. Real beetle wings are connected along the bottom of the centerpiece.
Materials: Round 18gauge and 26 gauge bare copper wire, Square 21 gauge copper wire, check fire polish glass beads, beetle wings, antique copper plated (over brass) chain, copper hook/eye clasp.
