The Knot Heads have published an eZine and the author of the second article is yours truly. Originally titled "Gender and Chinese Knots, Historically" (because I was resisting calling it "Sex and Knots" or "Knotty Sex") it has been retitled a more generic "Chinese Knotting" although the contents have not changed, other than an editorial interjection, that I have noticed. I'll probably republish the article here a some point, but that shouldn't stop you from having a look now if you like. 8)

mystic charm I've been obsessing about wire for a while now. If you tie your knots in wire you could make all sorts of interesting and unique findings like a chandelier/filigree finding or a stone/bead setting. This mystic charm was tied in 24ga copper wire. I first made a template with 1mm cord and ran the wire through as if I were adding a sideline embellishment thread.

As the slogan says, I'm going to try to post something knotty every day. I know that the likelihood of failure is high, but that's what new year resolutions are all about, no? 8) Wish me luck and play nice in the comments, there'll be kids watching.
