Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip for
February 21, 2011

Question:

Dale, my question has to do with woven weave bracelets. Have you, or will you, be doing a DVD on the subject? I have seen several, and would be interested in a tutorial in either DVD or book form. Thanks for any help you care to render.

-John in Alma, Arkansas

Answer:

I agree John, woven wire bracelets are gorgeous! However, that technique is not my personal specialty, so I would like to refer you to the artist who made this design her signature back in the early ’90s, my friend, Linda Chandler.

Linda has an excellent tutorial for the Basket Weave Bracelet design at this link: Basket Weave Tutorial (if the link doesn’t work, visit http://www.jewelrybylinda.com/ and click "Instruction for Basket Weave Bracelet Download" on the left side of the screen). Enjoy!

    Oh Linda’s books and all are great for learning wire weaving from. I don’t think she has produced any dvd’s, which I wish she would, but I have her books in my library.
    It is another aspect of working with wire and she is good at it.

    First, Linda and I want to thank Dale for providing everyone with the link to the tutorials on the Basket Weave and the Crocodile Ridge weave. The reponse has been incredible and we want to thank everyone who has shown an interest and/or placed an order. Also, thanks so much for the wonderful compliments!

    We are planning to release several DVDs in the near future, the first being the Basket Weave.

    Dale, you’re the best! And all of you wonderful wire workers ROCK!

    Thanks again,

    Linda Chandler and Christine Ritchey
