Knots are symbols for ties and love, so I imagined these knotted necklaces to remind us of the love ties that helped us during the isolation caused by the pandemic.
These necklaces are all worked starting from a long i-cord, partially beaded (optional), sometimes joined in the round and finally knotted in elegant knots.
