Hercules Knot, take 3…

My first two attempts are written up here. For this version, I wanted to do silver (instead of brass), and do a continuous loop rather than a curve and a ring. I also decided to use a jig to bend the loops. My goal was to have a display of my progress out for 12th Night, but I got obsessed with my new motorcycle and didn’t spend enough time in the studio.

IMG_20180116_101854.jpgI was cranking away last weekend trying to finish, when I realized that my rushing things was making for sloppy soldering. I figured I was better off stopping than presenting substandard work. Keep an eye out at future events for the finished necklace!

UPDATE: I got some sleep, tried again, and am much happier with the results! 🙂 Full paper here, of course. IMG_20180517_212304
