|spool knitting with sire in progress|
A few months ago I picked up this nifty spool knitter on sale at my local craft store. I had a vague idea of using it to make loose tubes filled with beads, but no ideas truly gelled, so it sat on the back of the shelf for awhile. Then, while looking for some new ideas for my precious wire, I discovered that this little tool can be used to create beautiful wire ropes that look similar to the Viking knit technique.
Half a spool of wire and several hours later, I had this: a slim rope of woven pure copper wire with a simple knot as the focal point, and wire wrapped ends and clasp.

It's been followed by a matching necklace, as well as Sterling silver versions. This is the new "Knot" collection, featuring a French knit wire rope tied into a subtle knot, with wire wrapped ends and clasp. Every facet of the collection is handmade, which is so thrilling! The collection has an understated, elegant look and feel. Here's the Sterling Knot necklace. It sits just below the collarbone and measures 17" long.
