The Challenge, Spiral Weave

Next in line for this challenge is the Spiral Weave.
I skipped right to the double spiral and made these earrings. They turned out to be a little heavy, there are 18 brass rings in each earring plus a little glass drop, so since these pictures were taken I have removed the ear wires and plan to replace them with a different kind of ear wire that balances better. The earrings aren’t that heavy you can’t wear them, they just tend to tilt forward.
I think this is a pretty and fairly simple weave.

The Jens Pind Linkage is another 4-in-1 weave in the spiral weave family.
I bought this kit from UnkamenSupplies and made a nice chunky bracelet. Unlike the earrings this is super lightweight since the jump rings are made out of aluminum. The kit came with a starter tail but I it confused me more than it helped so I started fresh. This weave is a little more difficult but once you get started it makes sense and it seemed like it was impossible to get it wrong.
I think this weave is really pretty.

Since the last Beaded Week I have renamed all the post to just have a number in the order in which they were posted rather than the number of the actual week of the year.

I made a pair of Gwen Fisher’s DNA earrings in matte black and hematite. Click the picture to get a better look.

I have started on the 2nd weave in my chain maille challenge. This bracelet is a Jens Pind weave using 14 gauge rings so it is quite chunky.

I have been working on a tutorial for my Drop bezel necklace. The actual bead work is done, what’s left now is to make the movie and upload it to YouTube.

See you soon! ♥
