Wired Chinese Knot - Grass Flower Bracelet
:) Hope you having a good weekend.
I made a bracelet this time. It's my first attempt making bracelet and I am very excited about it!
Attached herewith few pictures of my new bracelet - the photos were fresh from oven! I took it a few minutes ago. Though It's already very late in night over here.. so I will try to take more photos when there's sunlight/natural light tomorrow.
Other than the Wired Grass flower Knot, please also observe the clasps. As I was wandering around at bookstore as usual a few days ago I picked up a book that shows the making of this clasps( I couldn't recall the books' name, will go back and check and hopefully it's still around) - then it kept appearing in my mind so I decided to give it a try, I think I got right, though. :D
Back to the bracelet's core. Grass Flower Knot is another Chinese Knot that I've managed to turn into wire-jewelry form, well, not exactly, but the concept is there. It wasn't a success in the first few attempts, I am just very grateful that things worked out pretty well in the end. I also made two simplified wired-PIPAs to join this bracelet, since I thought they'd compliment the new pattern fairly well. :)
I hope you all like it. Please comment it away, your opinions will be very much appreciated! :)
Thanks very much in advance, dearies! :)
