    Thanks for all the great comments! Warped Wire Studio I use Beadsmith super-Lon size 18 cord to knot with. It fits most of the beads I use without having to drill the holes larger.

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Pretty in Pink”   1 week, 4 days ago

    Thanks for all the wonderful comments. Yes, Crystal Canary, the long knotted necklaces take me anywhere from 3 to 4 hours to complete. Shorter necklaces and bracelets are a lot faster but I love long necklaces so I’ll keep making them. I’ll also continue doing stringing and wire wrapping. I’m just happy to add knotting to [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Rockin Some Dumortierite”   1 week, 4 days ago

    Thanks for all of the great comments. Thanks Crystal Canary for your comment about the pictures. It took me a long time to figure out how to best capture the jewelry and show the details and the exact color. I bought a DVD on photographing jewelry and then read the manual that came with my camera. [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Purple Passion”   1 week, 4 days ago

    Thanks for all the great comments! Yes, Copenhagen Statement, I do all the knotting myself by hand. It took a while to get the hang of it and it takes a lot longer to do than just stringing the beads but I really love the fluidity and how the necklaces drapes. I started out in life [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Headhunter Fun”   1 week, 5 days ago

    I love love love these! I have a bunch of these in different colors from Petra also. I have only made one pair of earrings so far but I love yours more than mine. I am crazy for primitive assemblage jewelry using different unexpected elements and you did that to a T with these. Fabulous!

    These are so cool! I love the combination of elements. A perfect earring for fall. Beautifully done.

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Pearl envy”   1 week, 5 days ago

    I love pearls of any kind and you did a fabulous job with them here! Love the beautiful soft colors. Great job!

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “rust lime ricky”   1 week, 5 days ago

    I bought these chrysoprase stones also. I love what you did with them. Gorgeous colors! I am crazy for chrysoprase!

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Tequila Sunrise”   1 week, 5 days ago

    Wow, I really love these colors! Yes, I do remember Tequila Sunrises and I think I greeted some sunrises after drinking too many of them! Beautiful earrings. Great job.

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Turquoise wrap bracelet”   2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Hi guys. To answer the last couple questions, Crystal Canary, I am using Beadsmith super-Lon size 18 cord to knot with. So far it fits most of the beads I’ve used. I usually just have to knot once but on bigger hole beads I have to double knot for a larger knot that won’t fit through [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Pyrite peace sign necklace”   2 months, 4 weeks ago

    Wow, thank you Mary S! You know the exact procedure. Thanks for your interest Crystal Canary! I actually have three Etsy jewelry shops. One is for more high end jewelry (Mayababy Jewelry), one is for more mid range jewelry (Rocknit Jewelry) and one is for lower priced jewelry using brass and copper in a more tribal [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “Buffalo horn feathers lariat”   2 months, 4 weeks ago

    Thanks for the great comments everyone. Yes, Crystal Canary, I use a knotting tool. Once I got the hang of it, it went pretty smoothly. I had to practice a lot first because I am a perfectionist so if I made a mistake I cut the whole thing apart and started over. I almost gave up [...]

  • Rocknitjewelry commented on the Design “In Living Color. Inspired by Kat’s All That”   2 months, 4 weeks ago

    Wow! Gorgeous combination of colors. I used to make earrings like this all the time. Your design has inspired me to do some again after a very long time. I made a long necklace using this design with various sizes of rock crystal on a sterling silver chain. I made it for me but ended up [...]
