In Chinese, we call it "long life peach"; people use to give it to old parents as gift. For me, I love it even I'm still young!! Wink

I love it. It is some sort of macrame technique? I would love to have one of my own. Awesome work.

 Grin  Thank you very much!! This peach is made of strings by Chinese Knot. The strings I use is "Lay Lay On"(利利安) which even cannot find here in Hong Kong that need to order from Taiwan. I learn this from my friend long time ago, I'm planning to made a DVD just to show how to make it.

I'm making another one for hangings; it would be cool to hang in my bag!

How cool! Do you need special tools, or is it all just made with cord (and lots of skill!!)?

I have finished the one for hanging!

Well, what you actually need is strings, pins and patient.
