Christmas Wire Poinsettia Flower pendant

Well, keeping the Christmas theme going..I finally finished the poinsettia pendant. Wire weaving is basically a good way of 'colouring in' when creating wire pieces. It is fairly simple to do too.

You simply tie some slim (eg; 0.4mm) wire around some thicker wire (eg; 0.8 mm wire) & then wrap around the wire once, then feed down to the other side. Bring it over, wrap around once (or twice or's up to you) & then feed down to the other side going back & forth.
The only down side is it is very time consuming & a little monotonous. Perhaps it could be done as a therapetic approach for insomnia! zzzzzzzzzzzzz........
