cool! umm for jewelry, is there something you do to make sure that these knots don't go out of shape? I just know that for chinese knotted decorations, you sew and then spray it with hair spray or sth....

I think it is the same here, but as they were just first tries I didn't spray them yet...

ok, I was just wondering if there's some other kind of thing to harden them with~~ The idea of spraying jewelry with hair spray is kinda weird lol,,,

Celtic knots for beaded jewellry.... so, first time tying these sorts of knots? They're a lot of fun aren't they!
you're doing a good job... as usual... (I expect nothing less from you... ;) )

btw: all these knots are in ashley's book , (No 14 in my dA bibliography/ tutorial appendix here: [link] )

Later Sis!

Yeah, this should be the english title :)
Yes, my very first try and like them very much, but I need other string, the one I've got was for a camping washing line (really!!!) :rolf:

But I really love to try all kinds of knots... One day I want to become a knotter and not just a FB maker, which is nothing bad, but a bit one dimensional ;)

Ah and good to know that these knots are in Ashley's book, too! :)

Later Bro! :hug:
