Ello!

I just finished this:


Here's a close up of the knot:


It's all stainless, except for the connectors inside the celtic knot and the ball at the end which are bronze.

I think it would be great with a renaissance outfit, what do you think?  Grin

Have fun!

That's awesome - I need something like this with a few of my costumes - it looks way better than a rope belt!

What faires do you go to??

Wow, that's really impressive!

But one question - umm, how do you get it on and off? Is there a different clasp at the back?

That's really great. I love the celtic detail.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Thanks everyone!

Darthsqurl: I didn't really time it, but it was a couple hours maybe...

Snowfalldesigns: I haven't really gotten into faires so much yet, it's quite an investment....I like to go as a 'pay'tron, though!! Cheesy Mostly the Great Lakes Medieval Faire, and the Ohio Ren Fest.

Squirellypoo: Very perceptive! I moved the clasp on purpose, so as not to detract from the knot....it clasps at the side, so that any extra chain hanging down doesn't take away from the design in front.

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!
