Wire Basket Weaving

This past June, I took a wire weaving class at The Bead & Button Show and fell in love with the process and the look! Wire weaving allows the wire worker to create dimension and interesting textures. I was greatly inspired by some of these amazing artists!


Be Inspired!

I’m a big fan of Deryn Boyd Mentock’s work. Love this basket woven ring she created!
