I was asked by the Flint Schools to teach some wire jewelry classes that specifically used weaving as a technique. We first made earrings, then a pendant, all with different weaves. The third and final project was a woven bangle bracelet and this is the bracelet I made in the class. 16 and 26 gauge copper wire with a lampwork lentil bead.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
