This beautiful weave design is so versatile that I wanted to share it. It works well with Oval, Round and Tear Drop cabochons. This tutorial also includes three bail designs and an accenting technique. I have also included some tips throughout and on a separate tip page. Materials needed to complete One Tear Drop Cabochon 40mm x 27mm x 7mm (This is what I am using for the main tutorial, you can use oval or round as well)
75 inches of 20 gauge dead soft base wire (cut into five – 15” sections)
27 feet of 28 gauge dead soft weaving wire
Copper and or Sterling 3mm and 4mm round beads (optional – these are for decorative accents)
Tools needed to complete Chain, square and bent nose pliers, flush cutters, bail pliers, nylon pliers, bobbin for weaving wire and measuring tape.
Well made tutorial, easy to follow, beautiful finished product.

Love this tutorial...easy to follow instructions and it really is versitile. I am a beginner and was afraid I wouldn't be able to do this, but the instructions were very easy to follow and the photos for each step really helped.

Although all I was looking for was the technique for securing a non-drilled cabochon, the directions are thorough in each of the steps. I wouldn't hesitate to order any additional tutorials in the future.
