Welcome to Knots 'n' Knots
Original Knotted Jewellery that is Striking and Elegant
Knotting is split into two categories: practical and decorative. My passion and interest lies in the art of decorative knotting, be it the Chinese Zhong Guo Jie, Korean Maedeup or the Japanese Hanamusbi. I first began my studies in Seoul. South Korea learning the basics of maedeup. I then continued my learning in Taipei, Taiwan with more advanced styles of zhong guo jie. I even joined a Japanese class to appreciate the styles of Japanese knotting.
My interest in knotting lies in three categories, jewellery design, ornaments and wall hangings. Most of my designs are made with one uncut piece of cord, in keeping with the traditional knotting designs of Asia.
I use many different styles of cord, including natural cotton, leather, silk and satin cords. I use semi-precious gemstones in my jewellery designs together with Karen Hill Tribe Silver, Turkish Handmade Silver and Sterling Silver findings. Each jewellery piece comes with a full description of the materials used together with the Mood enhancers of that particular stone together with the Healing properties of it. My ornament designs have ceramic or porcelain beads. All the tassels are completely handmade by me.Please have a look in my Etsy Shop KnotsnKnots to buy my latest designs.
