Woven Triangle Pendant
Learn to weave with wire while making this striking pendant. This tutorial includes step by step photos in full color and textual descriptions of each step.
This intricate pendant is actually quite easy to make. It is also a great introduction to weaving with wire. Once you complete this project you can make all kinds of woven wire projects of your own design.
The photo above represents the exact pendant that is taught in this tutorial. Other photos in the gallery below are variations that you can easily make after you complete this tutorial.
This tutorial has evolved over 18 years of teaching wire work and years of teaching classes on this pendant design. In the process I have identified and resolved many of the difficulties wire workers meet in weaving with wire. I am always looking for better, easier ways to accomplish anything. I have reworked this design over and over until I made it as easy to complete as I can.
This extensive tutorial contains over 33 pages with 70 step by step full color photos. The photos are high-resolution so you can magnify them with clarity. This one is also easily followed if you print it in black and white. You do not need to print all the pages! I recommend looking it over and then print the few pages that you will really need to complete the project.
