The Love Knot

I was supposed to take a class at Need 2 Bead yesterday to learn how to make a love knot bracelet.  The teacher didn't show up.  

I am not a patient person.  When I want to do something, I want to do it....NOW.   So this morning, I did some searching for a tutorial on how to make a love knot.  I found one at Hodgepodgerie.   So I went back to the bead store to buy the silver and beads that I would have used yesterday and made it on my own.

The knots themselves are not very tight.  I think I either need to use a thicker gauge wire or make more coils.  I'm going to experiment using craft wire to perfect the technique.   But for my first go, I'd say it looks alright.
