Well I have needed patience to make a jewel inspired by her. It took a few goes before I got the wire twisted into Celtic knotwork and then to end up in the correct position to wire in the side pieces. But it’s coming along nicely and it’s been fun finding out about all the myths and legends associated with Rhiannon. That’s the wonderful thing about jewellery making – you learn something new with everything you create. Apart from learning all about her story, I found a nifty way to keep the wire taut. A cork mat and some macramé pins did the trick.
As always when learning a new technique it’s thrown up a lot of ‘what if I did this or that’ sort of ideas, so looking forward to making some more woven pieces using the macramé pins.
