The traditional ???God???s Eye??? was an inspirational starting point. Instead of using multiple crossed sticks and wrapping pieces, the construction process was greatly simplified until it used only a single piece of wire. The wire then provided the support structure, the covering design, and the connectors. The result was this standard diamond link of stems and loops: a link that was easy to make and very flexible as a design element for jewelry.This intermediate project includes step-by-step photographs.
