The topic of this month's Jewelry Artisans Community
blog carnival is "What's Inspiring Me Now?"
Honestly, at the time the topic was decided, I was not inspired by anything and experiencing a dry spell.Â Hate when that happens.
Not long after that, I was sorting through old books and came across a book about braiding hair that showed many different braiding techniques.Â Flipping through the photos, I was inspired to try braiding wire and decided to give it a go.
I started with fine gauge wire and worked my way up thicker and thicker gauges as I got the hang of it.Â Here is the end result and I'm quite happy with how it turned out:
Now my head is filled with ideas for other projects using braiding techniques all thanks to an old book about braiding hair.Â It's true - you just never know where inspiration will be found or when it will strike!
