About this design:

I took a class on how to knit "viking weave" - This is my first attempt. Wove 21' of sterling wire into a 6 inch tube. Compressed the weave through a press and this is the end result.

    Did the Viking knit hurt your hands? What gauge did you use here so we can get a perspective? SLS

  22. Mary Magdalene
    Mary Magdalene says:

    26 gauge sterling silver. You can also use 26 gauge artistic wire which is much less expensive. No, it did not hurt my hands. Take a look at this link to see how it’s done:
