Knotting and musings....


I've posted pictures of the Chinese knotting necklaces that I've been making over the past 2 years. I'm playing with this knot to make something a little bit different with it. Hope to finish it by the end of the weekend and post next week. This one is done in pink and handformed hearts on the lampworked beads. I call it My Heart is in Knots (or something like that - I can't remember exactly - but it's on the picture). I have this particular necklace up for sale at CindyGimbronebeads.com. Click on the title and it will take you the website.
It's going to be hot today. I woke up at 5:30 am and it was almost 70 degrees. So, my post will be quick as I have to get out and do my morning walk before 7 am. I know I know! What am I crazy for getting up that early and walking? I am a morning person - I do all my best work before 12:00 noon. Just how I am. So, I have to cut it short this morning - I want to be in the studio by 8 am and work before it gets unbearable!

I love this!!! The color combinations are great, and the snake knot, as easy as it, is one of my favorites.

I bought that book on Chinese knotting, and I bought an older one as well with the really complicated knots. Have you tried it with leather laces?

It's always nice to hear that someone likes what you've created! Thanks, Jeweled Reporter! This necklace is a project for a class that I teach. It's fun and quick - students really enjoy it.

Yes, I've done the knotting with leather. I'll take a picture and post it in the next few days.

I have the older book with the complicated knots - the Phoenix, dragon, etc knots. Amazing work in the book.
