Okay so I’m 7 weeks behind, but I plan to catch up eventually:).This was a project I did for a local contest on Pearls. Using my new technique, I created the base of the choker using Silver filled wire to created the viking knit and added the hand crafted caps that I created with wire coils and topped off with a pearl. The I created a bail and bezel with wire wrapping for the pearl coin. The back of the choker was created by stringing button pearls and then I created the coil clasp. I added patina to the silver filled wire because I felt this help show off the weave within the viking knit and textures in the wire wrapping on the bezel and end caps. This was a good piece for practicing all the techniques I have learned and how to put it all together.
