These 7 Wire Weaving Patterns Will Wow You!

Wire weaving patterns seem to always take a backseat to the more popular wire wrapping techniques. But wire weaving is just as versatile and useful as wire wrapping, creating dimensions and texture that look way more complicated than it actually is.

Wire weaving is an art, whether you’re going for a very consistent look or for a weave that’s a little wilder and unexpected. If your latest wire projects are looking a little blah, wire weaving patterns may just be the answer to that little something extra you want to add.

Learn some serious skills with these wire weaving patterns, then apply them to your own jewelry to make works of art that look like they belong in an art museum instead of on your wrist.
