Knotted necklaces

A week or so ago Lorelei Eurto posted on her blog about knotted necklaces. And her post really inspired me (thanks :-) ). For one, I was really attracted to every piece she showed. All great designs and color schemes, and such fun combinations of beads. And secondly I realized that style of knotting long sections of beads for necklaces would really suit me. I often use knotting in my jewelry making. Knotting or macrame is perfect when I make jewelry sitting in front of the TV, or outdoors on the veranda for instance. I also love to roam around in my stash and pick out and combine beads of different shapes, textures and colors.

I am very happy with how these three necklaces turned out. And I got to use some beautiful art bead pendants that I have been hoarding for too long.

I have knotted pearls previously and I really like doing it. Lorelei's necklaces inspired me too. I am in the process of putting a knotted necklace together now. I love how artists inspire artists!!! Yours are beautiful.
