Design Dissection: Amphitrite Pendant

Preview Image: 

Welcome to the first Design Dissection! A few things before you start:

1. This is an experiment that I originally posted in my business Facebook group. I had an idea that seeing a window into the design process might be helpful to some folks. I've never really done this before, so I really don't know how effective this will really be, and I hope ya'll will give me feedback.

Snowflake Weave Pictorial

This is a quick pictorial I put together while playing with the modified soumak weave I use most often. It's basically just graduated lines of the weave, separated by short coiled lengths, and the end result is a pretty pattern that looks like a row of stylized snowflakes. I used 22 gauge base wires and 30 gauge weaving wire here, but it would work well with a variety of wire sizes.
