lately, i've been pretty inspired by simple white crisp cotton knots, tied so intricately, to form elegant pieces of jewelry. obviously, i like the knot-like-ness of crochet (and by my recent crisp white ruffly layers), but even something a little more unstructured, like this gorgeous necklace. someone sent me a link to this (but i don't have the source!) but think it's pretty amazing.
or i could even see something simple like this monkey knot, reworked as a main piece in a necklace. but obviously you know, not the size of a doorstop.
and a big centerpiece like this would be absolutely gorgeous! i'm not even sure what kind of knot this is, but it would make for a spectacular necklace.
