Oooo, purty! While taking photos for some tuts I'm attempting, I threw the love knot bracelet in front of the camera and messed with zoom. Y'all might not think this photo is anything special, but it impresses me all to pieces. 'Specially compared to the non-zoom shots taken at the same time. Geez, gotta mess with zoom some more!

The knots are different gauges of wire, to demonstrate how each one looks. The turquoise disk and copper spacers and bead caps are from Magpiegemstones, of course.

SABOS generated quite a lot of student interest in more classes here. I'm collecting an interest list - what would YOU like to learn in June???

Viking Knit? Toodles Weaving? Tree of Life? Basic wire 101, of course!

OOOOhhhh, wait until you see what the muse has dreamed up for classes! Gotta come see me to find out! *singing - Temptaaationnnnn*

Kits and tutorials and bead stringing for the newbie.


Wire ends are tiny and hard to see when they are fuzzy!
