Featured Artist Knot Just Knots
I have to ask you a question so close your eyes and let your mind go. Now bring up a picture of macrame. What does it look like? Is it that 1970s plant hanger in strange shades of rust that was so popular? Ok, maybe this was my own perception since we had more macrame than I care to think about in my house. Now, open your eyes and prepare to be amazed at what macramé can be!
Steve is a passionate person with a love of Broadway musicals, the Boston Red Sox and currently works as a Registered Pharmacist. In addition to these varied interests there lives a passion for creating. At one time Steve owned a small craft shop and taught craft classes. He happily experimented with various mediums including pouring and firing ceramics. Steve soon found that this craft took a lot of space that he no longer had so he poured his creative energy into knots.
Knots? No, not the type of knot you get your shoelaces into, but that age old art of tying intentional knots to make art! Steve began working with macramé and sound found his house overflowing with his creations. The solution, KnotJustKnots was born!
Now, before you tell me that you are not interested macramé, indulge me a moment and check out knot work like you have never seen before. Everything from home décor and seasonal accessories to wearable art can be found in his shop. Wearable art? Yes! Jewelry made from beautiful cords and embellished with colorful beads make for a eye catching piece of jewelry entirely different from what you will see on everyone else.
Steve is happy to offer a bit of advice to anyone interested in trying their hand at selling their own handmade treasures; be willing to try but remember that you will have to spend a lot of time to get your name and product in front of the right buyers. This time promoting and working on your shops is well worth the effort when you make a customer happy and you watch your handmade treasure go to its new home.
