This is a fusion of two of my loves in crafting – chainmaille and knotting. As someone who started out with macramé, I have often considered trying to combine the two, but as the chainmaille has come more to the forefront it has taken me this long to create something I’m happy with!
The knot used is called a Sailors Knot and is a traditional both decorative and functional knot. I have used a chainmaille weave called Full Persian to create the “rope”, and it is woven with individual aluminium rings. The aluminium makes the piece lightweight and comfortable, smooth and easy to clean.
The necklace is 16 inches (41cm) long, which will put the knot right around the collar bone on most women. It closes with a lobster clasp for secure fastening.
A true statement necklace, this is sure to be a unique piece among your friends and will get you some attention. Elegant but modern, it will work well with a classic outfit as well as a more contemporary one. Its colour is a shiny silver so it will go with anything!
I make all my pieces to a high standard, the Viking way, but if you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact me.
