A very old and beautiful weaving technique is weaving on the loom. There are different materials to use to create jewellery. Cotton, silk or wool create amazing fabric but using beads gives more interest and elegance. The necklace I design is inspired by greek style, straight lines in autumn colours.
Warp and weft are the two basic components used in weaving to turn thread or yarn into fabric. The lengthwise or longitudinal warp yarns are held stationary in tension on a frame or loom while the transverse weft (sometimes woof) is drawn through and inserted over-and-under the warp.
Autumn colours beads woven on the loom in a greek style. Fringes as finishing.
This year I choose copper. Wires , hard threads able to manipulate in shapes and volumes.
It started with some ply. 6 for example. I started way. Weaving one by one the ply. After some cm I started to shape the weaving as I wished. Once I got the desired shaper i separated the strings: 3 and 3. I used a 2 by 2 weaving to wrap the first bunch. then I swirled it following the flow of the design. The second bunch was divided in 2 strings wrapped together and a single one woven alone as an resort. The free form shaping allow the design to evolve itself into a unique jewellery and to embrace the stone it hugs.
