A Happy Accident


About this design:

I need to add more rings to my tray for an upcoming show, and I wanted to do something different. After I formed this on the mandrel, I realized it would look really different if I 'tied' the ends together. I really like the way it turned out!

Components:

20 ga and 28 ga silver plated wire, Swarovski crystals

    Serendipity! Love the dimension, “tying the ends together” gives the ring! Fav!
    I really need to learn how to do this wire weave!
