Infinite Wings

Weave Description
This weave is an embellished of a single strand of Gridlock. Infinite Wings uses several ring sizes, but there is some wiggle room if you don't have exactly the exact sizes listed here.
NOTE: This weave was original published in Wirework magazine under the name Coiled Butterfly.

The center rings of the original strip of Gridlock alternate in size (a small colored ring alternating with a large plain ring). The outer (colored) rings are close in size to the small center rings.

To add the wings and "coils," join new large rings (slightly smaller than the large rings used for the center strip) with tiny colored rings.

Gridlock Base:
large jump rings - 16ga 13/32" (10.3 mm)
