Gorgeous Wire Knit or Net Woven Earrings Tutorial

By on Sunday, July 22, 2012 6 Comments

Remember that Viking knit or net woven wire bezel tutorial for pendants I wrote about?  Well, here is another outstanding idea along the same lines!  The tutorial is by a Hungarian artisan, Jade. She made earrings but we all know that pendants are also possible!



It's a little hard to read as Google Translate doesn't work properly. But fortunately Jade provided key photographs so we can see how she made it.  I must say that the net weaving really does frame the beads oh so prettily.

The beads she used are not cabochons but vertically drilled ones.  If you have cabochons, then adapt the design so there are additional wires behind them to hold them securely.

  3. Jade has some lovely creations on her website. It is a shame that Yahoo Babel Fish and Google translations can't seem to get it right.

  4. Yes, her site is worth the exploration although one has to rely heavily on the pictures. No translation software is ever good enough!

  5. I should really try this, as I have some patterned flat beads and the pattern would match the wire weaving perfectly.
