About

.. One Knot at a Time ..

About ten years ago, I unexpectedly dropped everything and took off to explore Brazil, a country that I deeply and mysteriously cherish to this day. That's were .. raïz .. was born [pronounced ra-iz] and if you were wondering what the word goes for, it simply means "root" in Portuguese and Spanish.
While being there I met a great friend whom, to my request, kindly re-introduced me to the basics of micro macrame, a craft that I had previously explored in my early teen years as friendship-bracelet-making but abandoned long ago. It was a revelation the very first minutes my fingers felt the strings. In the midst of a new life cycle, everything had to be seen on a different angle and the possibilities simple strings had to offer were endless. Indeed, I haven't stop knotting since then. Ten years have gone by. And even when wandering faraway lands, a bulky bundle of multicolored spools is always to be find in my company!
As time goes by .. raïz .. is unfolding into a modern and dainty jewelry line with an elegant aesthetic that focuses on the simplicity of graphic and organic details, pops of colors and contrasting textures.
Zillions of knots later, I keep crafting each piece .one knot at a time. with the utmost attention to detail to offer unique pieces of jewelry with a soul!

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

All pieces are knotted with a high quality waxed polyester string. Such string is often used for shoemaking and upholstery, therefore the jewelry is very sturdy and durable despite its daintyness: no fraying/no fading and colours do not run if wet.
►You can even clean your jewelry if need be! Use a small brush (such as a toothbrush) with a drop of soap and water, then rinse and pat dry with a cloth.

About the stones

The stones set in the jewelry pieces are individually selected during my winter escapades. The channelling of each stone –the engraved part in which the macramé work is solidly set in by string tension- is done by an artisan friend of mine.

Colors

All my photographs are taken under natural light and I try my best to make the colors appear as close as possible to the reality. Just keep in mind that there is always a slight variation through a computer screen so please get in touch with me in case of a doubt.
