In knots

Jewelry, Jewelry making, Rings, Tools

I discovered today that tying a knot in sterling silver wire is not as easy as you might expect. Well, as I expected, at least….Especially the thicker the wire is.

I made this ring for a friend in Cape Cod, using 14 ga. wire and pliers. The challenge was preventing perma-kinks in the wire. Anyway, I’m happy with the final result, once I soldered the back closed, filed, sanded and hammered. Will definitely be trying more of these!
