This time I use 1.5mm elastic cord to make this earring; with 925 silver ball ear wire and butterfly style ear back.

Very light, only 11g. They can be worn in everyday life.  Cheesy

This is very well done! Did you make the Chinese knot from scratch? I'm thinking it would look nice in other colours too.

Gorgeous! I love these. I agree with edeneadams - this would look great with two colors as well.

Yap, I agree. This one is in purple.

I did try to draw a scratch before I make a new knot pattern; however the result is ALWAYS different with my scratch. Sometimes it look better than my scratch; the other times it looks bad Cry
