nineteen loop single strand Prolong Knot in fine silver. Here's a single Prolong Knot, one strand of wire throughout, bent around in a bracelet shape. I prefer knots that allow me to do the entire piece with a single strand, though of course that doesn't keep me from making those chains with the linked knots, seen elsewhere on the site.
