Braided Wire

I have used 26-gauge wire to do this braiding without inserting beads.

Different gauges wire and different consistency would achieve different results (see above picture showing the variation of tightness of the braiding).

It is possible to achieve "tight rope like wire" by pulling and rubbing the sides while braiding.

Will using this braided wire to decorate a commission piece I am working on.

Will be teaching this technique at this Sunday (18.04.2010). You can also learn this technique via tutorial. Please check out Braided Pearl Bracelet Tutorial from the tutorial section of my blog.
