Wire Netting






Viking Knit
Viking knit cabochon wrapping is similar to the wire netting technique except for one crucial difference - where the loop connections are place.



Traditional Caged Wire 



Wire Weaving



Coiled Wire Bezel




5 Strand Wire Braiding
This one will be challenging for beginners who may not be used to working with thicker wire.



Prong Set Bezel



Wire Macrame
Another challenging one as this one requires using not just a long length of wire but also knotting it!

  2. Not only is Christina incredibly talented - but very patient too!

    My favourites are the heavier 5 wire wrap and the knotted one. They look incredible when completed.
