Viking Knit Jewelry
My daughters got me a Lazee Daizee Viking Knit Wire Weaving Tool Kit for my birthday in May. Having returned from vacation, I had the opportunity to give it a try. I have started out with 26 ga copper wire for my first few pieces. The tool was easy to use, the instructions easy to follow, and after doing the first three, my weaving got more consistent and even. These are two of the bracelets I completed! I am using my large hole lampwork beads created by my friend, Jeanne and VOILA! I am very pleased with the results and looking forward to trying some in bronze and argentium silver. I added patina and placed them in my tumbler for hardening and polishing.
