Netting gemstones/wire wrapped cabochons
Have you found the perfect bead or gemstone but it doesn’t have a hole to string it? Maybe you’ve been collecting sea shells or pebbles at the beach and want to work them into something unique and wearable?
Let me show you how to wrap wire in a way that holds your stone securely and elegantly with this netting technique. Based on Viking weave and looks much like a blanket stitch, for all you sewists out there, this technique is easy to pick up and afterwards you’ll be wrapping everything in sight.
Wear them as pendants on a chain or cord, link them together for bracelets or create something even more spectacular, you are only limited by your imagination.
All materials will be provided however if you have any flat back cabochons you wish to bring you may be able to have a go with them towards the end of the class.
