Designer: Kathleen Pierce
Published: January 30, 2009
Technique: Wirework

A follow up to her Trichinopoly Chainwork tutorial in the winter 2009 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry, Kathleen shows us unique ways to embellish and finish Viking Knit. She shares several options for finishing the ends, including adding cones and making coiled end caps. This tutorial also includes ideas for lengthening the Viking Knit tube, adding beads, adding a dramatic Viking Knit cover to a teardrop focal, and using Viking Knit to create a dreamcatcher. Instructions assume working knowledge of Viking Knit. This project will be free for a limited time.

About the designer: Kathleen Pierce is a graphic artist and self-taught jewelry designer. She loves to use a variety of techniques in her work, which she sells on her website,
