Chinese Knot Accessories are Back!

I am so pleased to announce that Tranquility Knot's designs are back in stock!

"Chinese knot is an ancient art form dating back to Tang and Song Dynasties, maybe even earlier. Culturally, they are expected to ward off evil spirits and act as good-luck charms. There are 12 basic knots, and by mixing them cleverly, you will get all the advanced knots and fabulous results. One major characteristic of this decorative knotwork is that all the knots are tied using one thread! Many types of thread can be used, however, satin or silk cord is the most common. Threads can come in a variety of colors, though the most commonly used is red, because red symbolizes good luck and prosperity.

Tranquility Knot's designs are a combination of traditional and modern taste. Most beads or pendants used in their jewelry are chinese porcelain beads, however they do use gemstones, swarovski crystals, pearl, wood or metal or glass beads too. Every piece is designed and handmade by Tranquility Knots, so it will be truly one-of-a-kind."

With the upcoming holiday season, each one of these designs would make great gifts! Some of the designs pictured here are the Red PanChang Knot KeyChain with Carved Stone Bead , Phoenix Tail Knot Bracelet and the ever popular Red Button Knot Ponytail Holder.
