Instructions
Step 1
Take 22 g ½ round wire and form a 4 wrap band in the centerpoint of the four wires. Using 22g ½ round wire make another band ¾” away from center band on each side.

Step 2
Using a ¾” equilateral triangle pendant, center the center band at the point of the triangle. Bend the wire at the point and cross the wires over each other at the top.

Step 3
Weave the front two wires together by crossing over each other at the top the same distance as the bottom portion of the triangle to form a diamond shape; secure the wires by wrapping in a single loop around the remaining wires.

Secure the cab by pushing the front 2 wires over onto the face of the cab and the back 2 wires onto the back of the cab.

Step 4
Take the next two forward wires and weave them over each other above the last two and secure them around the remaining two wires with a single wrap.
Repeat one more time with the third (forward most) set of wires to form the diamond basketweave over the pendant.

Step 5
The remaining two wires are used to create the bail as follows:
Wrap the two remaining wires with 22 g ½ round with thirty two wraps, fold the wrapped portion in half and wrap the bottom portions together to form a fully wrapped bail. Open up or “round” the gap with a mandrel if necessary. Complete the piece by taking the remaining two wires and secure them with a single wrap to the bottom part of the basketweave portion of the pendant.

Measurements can be adjusted slightly and make the same pendant using a square of rectangle as shown finished below.
