Week one was spent on weaving a box pattern necklace. I chose the Ripple Necklace out of the book Chained by Rebecca Mojica. The original pattern calls for using sterling silver, but I’m not that fancy. I used bright aluminum rings ordered from the Ring Lord in five sizes and three different gauges and weaved them using pliers coated with a rubber tool dip, so as to not scratch the rings. Organization is key when working with multiple sizes or colors of rings in a pattern.
Once you get the pattern down, it moves very quickly. Due to having to order five different rings, it is a bit of a costly necklace if you don’t already have other uses for the rings.
And the finished product!
