Peruvian String Art uses wire for the base form with smaller gauge wire coiled and placed on the base wire. Thin string, such as embroidery, cotton yarn, and thread, is place between the coils of the top wire. String can be woven on top of each other at different starting positions to create layered looks and multiple color combinations. I made a set of earrings to match a dress that I made and found them to be quite easy and fun. In my first pair I used 3 colors, proving this is not a difficult technique.
Here are some examples of ones that I found on Etsy:

Until next time, happy crafting.
