PATTERN DETAILS

This lesson will teach you to make a beautiful pair of earrings using simple frame shaping techniques combined with my "Archer's Weave". The archer's weave looks like tiny little arrows pointing towards each other and meeting in the middle. It's a great way to add a unique texture to a project. For this project you will be using 24 gauge wire to complete the weave with 18 gauge wire for the frame. You can vary the look of this weave by using different gauges of wire. The thinner the wire used for the weave, the finer the texture will be. For more noticeable "arrows", 22 gauge wire woven over 16 gauge wire looks amazing! I won't be showing how to wrap the briolettes in this lesson. However, if you don't already know how to wrap them you can find my free tutorial for wrapping Briolettes and Bead Clusters. *Note: All free tutorials mentioned in these directions are available from http://www.gailavira.com/tutorials.
