seven strand short braid (sketch) Seven Strand Turksheads

This series of knots taught me a lot about turksheads as I taught myself how to tie them.  I discovered there were several patterns I could tie the seven strand braid and seven strand turkshead.  And thus I discovered a whole new way to tie the five strand turkshead.  These are the most difficult knots I've tied in metal to date.

Images will follow soon.
