My first attempt

My first attempt - student project

Used what I had on hand, followed your lesson plan. Could've changed up measurements for the different cut of stone, but it still turned out like this with my first try [and different gauges of wires, not to mention my base wire was 'half hard' so..not the easiest to work with] 

Had to tweak a few things to make it work of course, but I'm loving this technique. Appreciate your classes definitely. 

I was wondering how you prevent the wire from slipping in your hands though, it seemed to me the more I weaved the more slippery the weaving wire got...
