Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic wirework skills
  • Experience with handling long pieces of wire

Pattern Description:

This tutorial is a good introduction to basket weaving in wire and every step is clearly illustrated and fully explained so you will find it easy to follow.

The central Celtic knot is pretty enough to be left as is but I also show you how to add bead embellishments.

This is a durable, strong bangle which can be made for any size of wrist and holds its shape very well.
It is also surprisingly quick to make and does not require a clasp.
