Hey Sebas,
Real nice carvings you show us once again.
As temperatures have dropped to just a few degrees above freezing I decided to concentrate on carving some smaller stuff and try some stone and bone while I'm at it. Posted my first stone a couple of days ago and loved carving it so much, I'm on my third stone now. Bone will soon follow.
A tutorial on creating these cords would be highly anticipated by me (as well as a lot of others) as i want to make pendants out of most of the small stuff i carve. I have some basic skill in making braids but a few pointers on the way you do these complex cords would be GREAT!

Dear Friends,
Here is the thing, as I posted last year and on my last two posts (I think...) I took a photo of my tools, though I have some more I only use those:

From left to right:
1 - S.M. tool
2 - S.M. tool
3 - Small chisel
4, 5 and 6 - Regular chisels (those are 3,5 mm)
The first two are from silver steel (I think it is like that in English and correct me if I am wrong) They cut lines, grooves and are wonderful to bring desings "up" (alto-relieve...). The small one was grounded manually using Arkansas stones and was an old dental piece used by my dentist (THANK YOU FOR THAT ONE!). The other three were bought from a blacksmith in Buenos Aires, Mister Stassen.

Hope you like them I LOVE THEM!
P.S. Guys, I am doing the Kumihimo tutorial. Stay tuned!
