The engagement ring I gave Smiling Face is a True Lover's Knot tied in gold wire.
My wedding ring is a Carrick Bend.
Now she has a diamond!
Why wouldn't the scarab work instead of the single pass lock (single Marlin splice)?
i tie mine similar but use whipping.it sometimes pulls off.i have never tied a soloman bar knot so do not now if this woulld work.to keep it from sliding off could you start tieing the soloman on the knot side of the nacrabiner working toward the loop.when you come to tie the last go around of the soloman bar could you go through the nacra(between the two cords) instead of around them? it would not be able to slide off then.
