Challenge #14 - Twined Spokes
This is my final challenge for the month and it is twined spokes from a project in Mary Hettmansperger's Book "Fabulous Woven Jewelry". The materials list called for 18 and 24 gauge copper wire and I used 19 gauge black wire and 28 gauge gold wire.
This time the whole length of the black wire was forged and then twined with the gold wire. I connected the three groups together with jump rings.
From the looks of the bracelet in the book, you needed 13 groups of 4-6 twined spokes to create a bracelet and I was not that ambitious! I loved the look of it and wanted to play around with the technique but not enough to create a whole bracelet.
