About the Author:

LAURA WILLIAMS first discovered the joys of tying knots as a girl scout, and quickly progressed to creating friendship bracelets to wear and share. The discovery of Chinese and other decorative knots inspired the opening of her online shop--northerndawn on Etsy.com. Her beautiful pieces of beaded and knotted jewelry are all handmade using the expert skills shared in 75 Chinese, Celtic & Ornamental Knots.

ELISE MANN, also known as The Crafty Owl, is a craft teacher, writer, and designer/maker specializing in beads, beadwork, and other jewelry crafts. She also spends two days a week as a professional pearl stringer, makes fused-glass beads, and is the journal editor for The Bead Society of Great Britain.

Review:

“This book caught my eye because I have always liked buttons and button closures, the more unusual, the better. Here is a step-by-step "knotinary" (my word) to help you create unique buttons and adornments for Asian knits, Fair Isle sweaters, hats, and more.” ―Paula Moliver, Hartford Knitting Examiner
