Our focus is to learn the modified soumak weave, how to weave with finer gauged wires and how to manipulate the base wires to create a tubular bracelet with diagonal splits that students can choose to either add beads within or leave open.

** (From Student Level) This bracelet is a great example of how wire weaving alone can be utilized to make stunning jewelry. While we use the bracelet to learn the weave those who are already familiar with weaving will come away with a better foundation of how to manipulate the base wires to create depth and interest in an understated manner.
