Adding a little more sparkle...

My latest line of earrings now have matching necklaces. If you're not too tied up (no pun intended), do pop by the shop and have a gander around.

On another note, my new range of jewelry using button knots as beads doesn't seem too hot. Would appreciate any suggestions or thoughts anyone has. Always looking for ways to improve, whether it's the color, designs or types of metal used. :-)

She Who Has Ears, Let Her Lust...

Ok, ok, a tad of over promotion - but to be blatantly honest, I AM totally loving my new line of Knot-Unsparkly earrings. Think mixing bead work with Chinese knotting is giving me an awesome imagination buzz. Plus, I am kinda the vintage-y, sorta dame. Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts on the designs, colors, pricing or anything else!

Knot-Unstylish New Creation

My first creation after a long hiatus due to studies.

Personally think this vintage-style dragonfly longstrand necklace is one of my better works but do hope heaps of others fall in love with it too. Took me a while to plan and assemble as this is the first time I'm doing something a little more eclectic.

Looking forward to comments so do drop a line!

One Knot at a Time - My First Sales!

I sold my first item on etsy! It happened last March 27, but I'm just now taking time to mark the moment. I'm so proud. You have to understand, this is my first ever online store, so I'm celebrating small beginnings.

Here's to a stream of never-ending knots of sales!

More than Knots Hold Things Together

I've been asked about how I attach knots to my hair barrettes. The knots are actually knotted onto the barrette and then held in place so it doesn't slide up and down the barrette with a really strong epoxy glue.

The epoxy glue used is a two parter especially mixed for things like glass and metal. It's the stuff that can hold a plate together if it's been shattered so holding a fabric knot in place on a metal barrette should be a breeze for it! :-)

The peeps at Bostik have a factsheet on their epoxy bond for any other hobbyists/handmade enthusiasts considering giving this glue a go.

The Basic Knot

The basic knot is the one that holds everything together. As it is the starting point of whatever else we are tying, it's always good to get it right.

So hopefully, as I go about setting up my first ever online store, I'm getting its basic knot right - interesting hand-knotted jewelry and accessories peeps would like to buy, friendly and fun customer service and everyone having a great time overall.

Anyhoos, here's where I'll be posting updates about the things I'm selling as well as promotions and other good stuff like that. Enjoy reading!
