Crystal and dagger bracelet failure and success

I tried weaving using the No warps method and silk warp.  The silk warp was meant to show and provide nice drape.  It was a failure because it seemed too flimsy and I could not figure out a way to make the two warp ends disappear.

Piece just was not stable

Those yucky ends just were not going to work.




I ripped it out and used a softflex warp instead.  Piece turned out much better and is a keeper.  It also will withstand the test of time whereas the silk piece felt like it could fall apart.
