The Wyrms are Woven

From this:

To this:

afterweaveThe thicker paper was harder to weave but I managed it eventually.  The up-side is that the thicker paper means that the pieces stay locked into this knot shape without glue.  The one I made with thinner paper falls apart quite easily.

    • Thanks for the compliments. I would love to make a living as an artist but I’m not a businesswoman. I do it for fun. Doing it for money would make it much less fun. 😉

  4. I say, I say – way back in history the Celts and the Croats must have lived quite close to each other for the interlace is very prominent in both traditions 😀

    • Interesting. As far as I know, the Celts were spread quite widely across Europe until they were conquered by the Romans. Then the remaining unconquered Celtic tribes were restricted beyond the NW Roman borders – mainly in Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and a few in France. (Any historians please feel free to correct my dodgy summary.) I will see if I can find any Croatian interlace on the Internet.
