I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.View all patterns by designer (70) »
Knotting is an ancient art form in China and is often formed with silk cords both for practical and decorative purposes. The intricate designs of these knots are often used to add interest and elegance in the decoration of functional objects. The Little Princess Necklace draws on the beauty of Chinese knots for its inspiration.
Beauty in simplicity - The Little Princess Necklace.
A simpler but no less elegant necklace featuring a single double coin knot. A beautiful octagonal Swarovski crystal is suspended from the knot to give a very sophisticated look.
The neck strap features a flat spiral weave. Through the use of magatamas instead of just round seed beads, the neck strap is extremely supple and textured. And to finish, a small and exquisite lotus bud like toggle ball secures the necklace.
The Little Princess Necklace is part of The Double Coin Knot Collection. You can view the complete collection at www.manek-manek.com.
