My brief fling with ordinary jewelry appears to be over already:)
The weeks work turned out to be only an excersize, rather than a finished design. I was 80% done when I suddenly decided to scrap it and start all over.
I wasn't prepared for how strong and dense the twining weave would be. I had been advised to use smaller guage wire, but did I listen? lol
Other mistakes and lessons learned besides wire guage issues were, pulling too tight on my spoke wires and the LOS cannot be cleaned from between the weave, so I better want it to be black!
Also got biggest blister ever!
