This is a bit of experimental/sample wire braid I've been playing with the last couple of days.

Very dramatic, and very evenly woven. My hands ache just looking at it! What gauge ire do you use?

It was 20 gauge I think. It actually wasn't too hard on the hands- you use a clamp to keep the rest of the braid in place/out of the way as you work on the band row by row. Also, the wire is dead soft so its lovely to bend around. :) Lol, thanks! It looks even but I took the picture to give that lovely even impression.

It really is amazing. I've done one attempt at braiding with a clamp, but was using 18ga and it work hardened *really* quickly. Haven't tried again, but it's tempting...

I would head down the the hardware store and buy either some brass or copper 20-22 gauge and try again! I would also just let practice be practice and not bother trying to fix any mistakes so it doesn't harden up. Just get good at it, lol.
