EZ960® Basket Weave Pendant by Karen Trexler

 

Karen discovered her interest in jewelry and metalsmithing in 2009 when she took a jewelry class in high school. Thoroughly hooked on making and interested in expanding upon the basics of metalsmithing that she acquired from this class, she continued to study metalsmithing and jewelry design in college and received a BFA from Ball State University. Karen then continued her studies at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and received her MFA in the spring of 2018 before joining the Cool Tools team.

In this video, Karen creates an intricate basket weave design using strips of greenware EZ960 Sterling Silver Metal Clay. This technique has endless possibilities. She also includes her soldering technique to attach sterling silver chain to the bail.

The tools and supplies used in this video are listed below.
