Knots are an enchanting feature of Celtic design, but until now they had only survived in manuscripts, carvings, etchings, pottery or embroidery. Now Suzen Millodot has created beautiful jewellery from real three-dimensional Celtic knots tied with cords and embellished with beads and pendants. Suzen demonstrates techniques such as button and braid knots, plaits and Turk's Head knots and shows how to use them to make eighteen stunning projects including necklaces, bracelets, rings, brooches and earrings.

Another Book I can sink my teeth in, very clearly illustrated, easy to understand & would b great given as a gift
Karenplatt.co.uk: The jewellery in this book is all inspired by the Celtic theme. Celtic inspired beads are used, but the basis of this book is on making cords for necklaces, rings and bracelets from Celtic knots. Eighteen fabulous projects are shown with easy-to-follow-, step-by-step instructions and clear photographs. You can create original jewellery with a Celtic theme. The book has a thorough introduction including a brief history, materials and equipment and how to dye your own cords. The knots might look complicated but there is no need to get yourself in a twist as the instructions could not be clearer. Start with a simple braid or plait and work up to the more challenging work. All who are interested in jewellery or Celtic work, will be entranced by this 80-page book.
