Vyaz'

I am fascinated with decorative Russian style of headings known as Vyaz. Here, I've been fiddling with the idea.....traditional by no means but in the spirit of the vyaz ligatures.
I've adjusted the type here with western letters to represent how it might look in

The link is to the right on the bottom of my list just above "my images"

Do you have a site I can add as well??

Oh! That one I know! I read them as well, and somtimes post there, too :)
I have my own blog as well: Vademecum, but most posts are in Russian. Still - there are some calligraphy posts there...
For instance,
