Macrame is the art of decorative knotting without using needles or hooks. By using a series of knots and incorporating beads,precious or semi precious stones and/or shells,many ornamental patterns are created and by a special technique, the macrame craft keeps the knots in place while the work is being done and elements are being added.Each piece of Kwan’s macrame jewelry is unique and one of a kind created using materials sourced locally both from New England and from her native Thailand.
