Tie It Up

For a very long time I have had a fascination with knots, I think it subconsciously reminds me of where I grew up. I enjoy their intricacy, their durability and all the tricks they entail. I especially adore drawings of knots, I feel like you need to be a very patient and detail oriented artist to document a knot. I find that nearly impossible. As a child my Dad had this book, which is now in my possession (he probably is wondering where it is) that had pages full of beautiful illustrations of knots. I adore it.

This fascination with knots has led me to go into fits over knot jewelry. I simply love it! The most common knot jewelry is something most people are familiar with, the love knot. I only have one pair of silver studs, but I am imagining myself building a life long collection of this knot jewelry to leave my grandchildren one day. From time to time I browse Etsy (shocker right?) and I love to see what jewelry designers are doing with the simple, eloquent concept. I have built myself a hefty little favorites list and I think it is finally time to share it. (Hubs: if you are reading this, think Christmas (I like the bracelets the best!))

This is my absolute favorite!
Aren't they beautiful. I really want that bracelet! It is just too perfect. Swoon worthy to say the least.

What is your favorite piece of jewelry? Or a collection you hope to inherit one day?
