Woven in Wire Jewelry: Tidal Wave Ring

Sarah Thompson’s gorgeous book Woven in Wire features many wire jewelry designs which are woven flat and then sculpted to add dimension. The Tidal Wave ring, however, is not one of them! Try out a new way of wire weaving with this project that is much easier than you may think.

Woven and sculpted at the same time, the Tidal Wave ring pattern allows for interpretative variation depending on the maker’s style and whim, creating a beautiful, undulating, organic wire jewelry design. Add a special bead or pearl to this ring to create a piece reminiscent of the rolling seas. The idea is to relax and let the wire speak to you, making it a personal keepsake begging to be shown off at every occasion!

This ring is stunning and works up quickly! Adding new wire jewelry skills to your repertoire has never been so easy. Through fully illustrated step-by-step instructions, Sarah guides you as you wrap your wire from start to finish.
