Someone in LJ asked me how I made these Celtic Knot earrings:
So I made another pair and took pictures of each step. I thought perhaps some here might appreciate it.
Cut two even lengths of square wire, lenghth depending on how big you want the knot. I used 2 1/2 inches of 18g.
Bend both in half, forming a U.
Squeeze the legs together.
If you're like me and have trouble finding the exact middle with your eye, you'll have to even the legs at the bottom before you curve them slightly.
Mate the two pieces. Pay no attention to my grubby finger.
Hold both ends with pliers and pull tight.
Curl the legs so that it touches itself over the loop, like this:
The leg curls will have to be squeezed together and adjusted. There, you are done.
