Weaving Wednesday - Sterling Silver & Rainbow Moonstone

This is a piece I created recently with Sterling Silver wire and a beautiful Rainbow Moonstone.

Here's the finished piece.

I started with a basic chevron weave and created the frame.

 Next I secured the frame and started on the bail.

 I pulled four of the frame base wires around to create a basic figure eight weave for the bail.

 After securing the bail I started on the two side wires.  I created a circle for the bail with one side.

 And some loops around the front on the other side.

 Here's a look at the base weave on the side of the stone that frames the stone in place.

 And a look at the front.  Man, that Moonstone shimmers!
