Experimenting with Chinese Knots

Thursday, February 26, 2009

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.

It's good to see your trial, looks really nice! :o) I've got this tutorial too, but I haven't tried it yet. And the snowflakes version is cute!

I love Corras tutorials, I have not been as succesful as I would like to be but it's fun trying.

These are so intricate and look like quite a challenge. You did a great job!
