Wire weaving is a set of techniques, similar to basket weaving, where you wrap thin weave wires around thicker BASE WIREs to create patterns and textures.     You can then use these wire-woven strips to make all kinds of things, such as the framework to turn a cabochon or bead into a pendant, earring dangles, bracelets, bails, and the like.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN...

 

In the WIRE WOVEN MAYAN PENDANT project, you will learn how to plan out a Wire Weave pattern design, selecting materials, create architectural support and structure.


The instructions help you...
...visualize the  process,
...lead you through a fun project, and
...offer many design possibilities for the artist.


LearnToBead Goals: The Project covers...

- materials needed
- preparing the wire before weaving
- creating a 2-BASE WIRE soumak weave called Dressed or Nude
- shaping our wire weave to fit it around an elongated bead, and turning the bead into a pendant
- ending and adding weave wires

The weaves:
Graphic Nude Or Dressed, Soumak Weave, 2-BASE WIREs





My kit projects are part of our overall education program at Be Dazzled Beads in Nashville. These kits are developed within what is called The Design Perspective.

The Design Perspective focuses on how the jewelry designer and bead artist make choices about...
-what to do, and not do
-what to include, and not include
-how to balance off conflicting demands between beauty and functionality.



THE WIRE WOVEN MAYAN PENDANT
PROJECT GUIDE BOOK

Every participant receives a Project Guide Book
with instructions and design discussion.
       

In the Project Guide Book, I first guide you through this project's planning process. That is, I discuss the types of choices I made, when creating this piece. These choices include things about technique, color and materials, and about form, structure and function. I discuss how I leveraged the architectural strengths of each stitch to achieve my overall goals.

Then, I go over, in detail, with many illustrations and diagrams, step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions.

15 Pages, 16 Color images

About Warren Feld
warrenFeld1.jpg
"Jewelry Design Is A Life Lived With Wearable Art" -- Warren Feld

For Warren Feld, Jewelry Designer, beading and jewelry making endeavors have been wonderful adventures. These adventures, over the past 31 years, have taken Warren from the basics of bead stringing and bead weaving, to wire working and silver smithing, and onward to more complex jewelry designs which build on the strengths of a full range of technical skills and experiences.

He, along with his partner Jayden Alfre Jones, opened a small bead shop in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, about 30 years ago, and called it Land of Odds. Over time, Land of Odds evolved from a bricks and mortar store into a successful internet business – www.landofodds.com . In the late 1990s, Jayden and Warren opened up another bricks and mortar bead store – Be Dazzled Beads – in a trendy neighborhood of Nashville called Berry Hill. Together both businesses supply beaders and jewelry artists with all the supplies and parts they need to make beautiful pieces of wearable art.

Warren leads a group of instructors at Be Dazzled Beads. He teaches many of the bead-stringing, jewelry design as well as business-oriented courses in the curriculum. He works with people just getting started with beading and jewelry making, as well as with the program’s advanced bead study groups.

His pieces have appeared in beading and jewelry magazines and books. One of his pieces is in the Swarovski museum in Innsbruck, Austria.
