Experimented with two Chinese Knot tonight. Been a bit slow with my wires lately so this is a nice break. This first one is from Corra's tutorial for Zhu Earrings. Instead of 28ga, I tried it out with 26ga wire and of course its a bit tough because with this knotting, the wire is treated like a thread...Not very happy with the outcome but ok for a first try :) This is not a ring or earring. Just an experimental piece.
This is the snowflakes knot. This time around I use 25ga and needless to say, it is tougher but manageable. I think thicker wire like 23ga would look better.
