Softflex wire bracelet with No Warps to Sew in method

The next step in the exploration of this new method of weaving on the Mirrix Loom where are no warps to sew back in was to try it with wire.  I dug into my wire drawer and came out with a spool of soft TOUCH size .010 in. diameter wire.  Warped my loom in about ten seconds with eight warps.  The advantage to using this method with wire is two-fold. Wire loom work is hard to finish and wire is expensive and it's wasteful to have a lot of long warp ends.  Both issues were immediately solved with this method.  I love my new bracelet!

I am loving this no warp finishing you are exploring. Are you going to offer this in a kit or the wire roll? Maybe this could be a future weave-along project. I hope you continue your exploring... you are making great discoveries.
