DIY Chinese Knot (Pipa) Earrings

These earrings are inspired by Chinese knotting, a decorative handicraft art that dates back to the Tang Dynasty.

The knots usually consist of double layered, symmetrical designs in red thread. The finished product is often hung up in homes, car rear view mirrors, used as key chains… generally resembling a symbol for good luck.

Here is a practical use of it, in something that you can wear - some stylish earrings!

Notes: Adjust the knot before gluing down the ends to your desired size. To prevent fraying, use a lighter and carefully run the flame over the ends of the thread a couple of times.
