Please remember that what I'm showing are weaving techniques as I create pieces and learn. These are not full blown project tutorials, but I do hope you can use the information to inspire your own creative projects!
1. Anchor your weaving wire (26 or 28 gauge is best) by creating three single loops around the outside frame wire.
2. Loops four and five should cross both frame wires and then do three more single loops around the outside wire.
3. Repeat this pattern all around your frame wires. You can, like I did, choose a logical and attractive point to break the weaving pattern and do simple coiling around both frame wires, then continue the weave pattern.
In this section, I stop the three to two loop pattern and move to a one loop pattern over each of the three wires.
1. Starting at the inside frame wire, anchor the weaving wire by creating three single loops, moving the wire to the right.
2. Cross the center frame wire and weave down, between the center frame wire and the right side frame wire. Bring the 26g back up between the first and center frame wires, completely encircling the center frame wire.
4. Bring the weaving wire under and up the outside of the first frame wire.
Repeat this pattern as far up your piece as you desire, when using three frame wires.
This is what it looks like so far. I haven't anchored the focal bead yet, but have it positioned for a visual inspection on my pendant. Here's a peak at the whole thing... remember, it isn't finished! So I hope you come back to see where this goes.
Enjoy your wire craft and have a beautiful day!
