Highly inspired by "Fish" (YU) by Cheers Chen(http://www.cheerego.com/)
With help of technology, I finally am able to write this step-by-step guide without struggling too much on capturing the work flow and worrying that there's not much details left to show. This tutorial is composed using 58(including coverpage) high-resolution pictures, all steps and procedures are zoomed and focus to deliver the precise instruction via a set of terrifically clear pictures.
In this document, it also listed out the tools and materials used to achieve this composition. The tutorial will walk you through the entire process of creating this FISH design.
The usual way of attaching beads to the core focal includes:
1. Attach beads by coiling on the core wires or,
2. Attach a chain on the core wires so that you will have space to attach beads.
So what so special about this technique?
The essential part about this design is - the knotting itself will create a whole stretch of tiny holes that's technically, would allow a 30ga wires to go through it TWICE. Knowing that 30ga wires are widely used for bead attachment, this technique will be very useful for your jewelry creation. You are able to preserve the originality of your design, and add texture to them for richer finish. DELIVERY:

Born and raised in the bustling suburb of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I graduated from my adopted home of Melbourne, Australia, with a Bachelor?s Degree in Computing. Starting with basic jewellery craft in 2007, I quickly moved on to wire jewellery two weeks later and was instantly hooked. Thinking of a way to innovate, I realized that the art of Chinese Knot/Knotting would introduce a certain je ne sais quoi to my creations, and thus began my fascination and passion for creation in this style and medium.
Amongst the encouragement that accompanied my first tutorial though, there were some who felt that i should be writing tutorials in my mother tongue, on the narrow minded pretext of there being a glut of tutorials for the English speaking audience.
I believe art should live naturally and be expressed as freely as breathing, which is why I continue to write and design as much as I can, in as many languages as I can. Today I am presenting Handmade Wire Jewelry here in and from Malaysia, majoring in Wired Chinese Knot/Knotted Jewelry series. Wires taught me to be humble, and I give a short prayer of thanks each time they survive my designs.
