Karen Smith, tapestry Pi necklace with semi-precious stones and beads. These lay around the neck beautifully in stunning colors and stones to make a statement. 17 inch length. Pi stones 1.5 to 2inch diameter. Each are one-of-a-kind.

Karen says about her work: "For almost 40 years I have been working with micromacrame knotting to create jewelry and tapestries inspired by cultures around the world and the abundant natural beauty in my own backyard. Using primarily #18 nylon thread in dozens of colors, I work with a small variety of knots to make patterns of my own design. I often incorporate gemstone cabochons, fossils, and beads, and occasional woven, fabricated metal into my pieces. To break up the linear aspect inherent in textile patterns, I insert knotted ribbons or bundled, wrapped threads, which pierce the tapestry and give dimension and flow to the work. I knot over soldered wires to secure stones within their bezels, however most of the structure of the work is formed by the knotting alone.

Each of my pieces is a journey of exploration in textures and colors. After all these years, I feel I am only just beginning to discover what is possible with this medium."
