Craft ADD or Multi-task Crafting allows me to bounce around in my jewelry work. One day, I'm at the torch, another day, will find me surrounded by spools of wire with pliers and cutters in hand. I'm enamored of weaving with glass and wire. I've wanted to download a few of Eni Oken's tutorials to try. I especially like the Herringbone Weave and it's free! For practice like this, I use an unsaleable bead (in this case, it's the color and stringer on it) with cheap craft wire. Once I get the technique down, I'll try it with good beads and wire. Here's a second try at it.
Not perfect but worth another practice or two then I can move on and use good beads and wire - or better yet, I'll move on to another tutorial!
Have you tried any new techniques lately?
