half knot necklace

    I'm still not very good at the mechanics of blogging:  I wanted to put these pictures side by side, but couldn't get that to happen.
    Anyway, as soon as I figured out how to do get my tube structures to spiral, I thought of making a piece that would look like a loosely knotted scarf.  As you can see, you can make twist the 2 ends together in 2 different ways, although I think the vertical twist (the bottom picture) would be better with 2 twists instead of just 1.   I plan to do another one, probably with the twist closer to the neck and longer tassels hanging below the twisted part.  The only problem with it is that  once it's tied, it just looks like a flexible tube, and you can't tell that the curves had to be built into it.  Oh, well.
