Ornately Knotted Necklaces

The Necklaces by Etsy Seller Elfinadesign are Terrifically Twisted

— June 24, 2012 — Fashion
Etsy Seller Elfinadesign has done a fantastic job of remixing statement jewelry pieces with this collection. In contrast to statement pieces that usually have jewels, gems and glitter, these necklaces demand a subtler kind of attention with their woven characteristic. Made from colorfully knotted threads and cords, these pieces are an awesome accent to a classic jeans and t-shirt kind of outfit.

Cristina Lillian, the creative mind behind these creations, is extremely flexible when it comes to the designs of her necklace; customers are able to choosee and customize the colors, materials and length of their purchased pieces.

Although these necklaces are my personal favorite, Elfinadesign has also released a series of bracelets, earrings, bangles and brooches. All of Elfina's products cleverly incorporate woven cords and threads. The knotted nick-knacks necklaces by Etsy Seller Elfinadesign are stunningly plaited pieces.
