I was introduced to Viking Wire Weaving a few years ago at a Novice Schola. Since then, I have expanded my knowledge of the history and construction methods, and now teach my own class.

Here is some of my work:


I've done several pieces of Wire Weaving, but I was challenged by the idea of doing a tri-color weave (using silver, gold, and copper wire) where the three metals alternated by rows. I have seen examples of pieces that other people have done where they wove a section of silver, then a section of gold, and so on. But I wanted to try to figure out how to do a more integrated weave. This bracelet was done as a 5-loop double weave, and finished with a twisted wire clasp of gold wire.
