I made this pendant when I was taking a class in Viking Knit from Joggles. I don't always like the face cabs that are available, but I fell in love with this one. The suggestion for a pendant that went along with the instruction was to make branch fringe around the entire cab. I like making branch fringe, but I knew I would get bored doing the entire piece with it, and since I love asymetry, I thought I would just do part of the face with the branch fringe and finish with a plain fringe stitch. I used 3mm and 4mm bicones to create a double edge to finish the pendant.
The main focus of the class was the Viking Knit which is an ancient wireworking technique. My daughter first introduced me to it, and I loved the process of working it, and also the finished product. There are many ways of finishing the ends of the knit, but I chose the option of stitching peyote tubes to wrap around the ends. Unfortuately,I haven't done as much of it as I would have liked to do, but I'm planning to go back to it. It's a versatile technique to have in your bag of tricks.
I hope you're enjoying the end of summer. The weather is cooling off a little here which is a good thing!
Thanks for visiting. Have a great weekend.
