    Most of the hammers in Italy are made like that, square on a side and flat on the other, I found difficult to find them made like that in the USA.

    I think it have something to do with the fact that most of our houses are made out of bricks or stone instead of been made out of wood.

    I love the decorative knot holding the ring, but you might want to invest a couple of dollars for a clasp on the back of the necklace cord. Otherwise you may accidentally garrote yourself it becomes caught on something...

    Thank you.

    I actually prefer a knot, and always wear my necklace that way. The necklace it's fast to put on and take off, no metal in contact with the skin, only leather, and no chance to loose it…but I never consider the chance of garrote myself in to something, thanks for the tip.

    I also have a necklace clasp tutorial here: https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-COPPER-NECKLAC...

    I will add the link it in the instructable too.

    Ok, I give up...am sitting @ my desk at work, trying to replicate that knot (with, er, less-than-optimal materials, LOL!) How do you do that double-type knot??? Thanks!

    You need to look at the 15 and 17 step photos, all of them. (Not the 16). But probably you already did...just try and try than, May be it will make the time at work pass faster!
