Combine ornamental knots with beads for a modern look, or choose a more traditional style with entirely knot-built pieces. With detailed material lists and photography of finished items, this book is the complete guide to a unique style. Also containing a comprehensive techniques section, 75 Decorative Knots shows how to use jump rings and seal cords correctly. This practical know-how will be invaluable as readers progress to designing and creating their own knotted jewellery.
Laura Williams first discovered the joys of tying knots as a girl scout, and quickly progressed to creating friendship bracelets to wear and share as a teenager. In 2006, Laura moved from Wiltshire to the far north of the Scottish highlands, where she had the opportunity to devote more time to her creative endeavours. The discovery of Chinese and other decorative knots inspired the opening of her shop - NorthernDawn.etsy.com - on Etsy in 2009. Her beautiful pieces of beaded and knotted jewellery are all handmade using the expert skills shared in this book.
