Woven Bail

Here is my latest creation in wire weaving. It is silver hobby wire wrapped and woven with copper color hobby wire. /the wire used to wrap and weave the bail is a bit heavier than the typical 26 to 28 gauge wire used for weaving. It is nice how the silver shows through the copper color.

Wire weaving looks nicer and is easier done in small areas of a creation. In addition to the weave in this bail playing on ones perception, so does the shape of the bail. This being done with the bail going back through itself. While taking pictures there was a challenge in getting the bail to show its shape, transparency and many colors in the boro pendant. (from Alaska Boro Beads http://www.alaskaboro.com/)

This pendant will be worked into a necklace. The bail will function, somewhat, like a floater that one sees in many necklaces today.
