So I thought I’d keep a little, mini blog going on while I begin to viking weave.
Just a short bio, I stared working with metal and wire just a year ago. I wanted to jump into the viking knit stuff right away, but was beyond intimidated by it.
So, last night, after finishing up an all-wire, no stone piece, I decided that today was the day I was doing it. Watched/read about 20 tuts until near 4am. Made notes, got everything together. In about an hour or so, I’ll be in my studio, getting started.
I am nervous. I don’t expect it to be great, it will be a first. And I stress about the amount of wire I might end up wasting. But I am ready. Bought a ton of extra silver plated wire just for this.
But still, I’m a bundle of excited energy.
So, any of you fab jewelry makers who have tried, I welcome any tips. :)
