I created this pendant from basswood. I took the idea from the celtic knot pattern I had in a book of Celtic patterns. I cut the pattern out on the scroll saw and drilled the holes for the chain. I then carved in the knot detail with a hand carving knife and sanded with 100 and 120 grit and finished with 220 grit. I soaked the pendant in Danish oil and left it overnight to dry and then sprayed a couple of coats of lacquer. I hotfixed the three emerald rhinestones and attached a copper coloured chain.

Very nice piece. You did a great job.
I was looking on how you made the illusion of the weave the I re-read you post and realized you carved part of it. Very cleaver.

Thank you Ian. Yes in order to get the weave I had to hand carve and sand the detail.
