. One Knot at a Time .

Hello! My name is Mélanie and I am the head, soul, heart and fingers behind each tiny knot of .. raïz .. jewelry since 2008.
My journey as a micro-macramé artisan unexpectedly began somewhere in 2007, upon completion of a translation degree, when I took off to Brazil with a strong will to test my destiny. And that's where .. raïz .. was born [pronounced ra-iz] which goes for "root" in Portuguese and Spanish ; )
I had no idea that .. raïz .. would become a major part of my life for the years to come or that it could even turn into a full time business. Being an instinctive person, it all happened very gradually throughout the years ~with much determination and dedication.
So, back to the Brazil story: after months of wandering around, stars finally aligned and paths crossed with a friend, whom to my request re-introduced me to the basics of micro-macramé: that craft I fiddled with in my childhood as "friendship-bracelet-making". Well, it definitely struck a chord on that day coz I haven't stop knotting since then!
Once back home in Montreal, it took immeasurable patience and time to master the technique all by myself. Online tutorials were not an option. And Etsy being still in its very early phase I carried on with the hippie vibe and I started 'squatting' around town to sell my creations. For about 3-4 summers I cycled my way up to a beautiful viewpoint where I would sell my craft incognito to tourists and fellow citizens. I loved it. It kept me in great shape, making my way up through the forest's trail was blissful, plus I earned some money doing what I liked. I made myself a really free and happy person with that formula! But at one point I was lured into obtaining an ‘official’ vendor permit to hold a booth in the downtown district. Ok! So I bought a small cargo trailer for my bicycle and pedaled my way, down this time, to Ste-Catherine’s hot, noisy and smoggy sidewalk; where I set-up my booth spring to fall for the following 6 years... or until I seriously fed myself up of the street's turmoil.
For the past few years now, I've been selling mostly at craft shows and markets , as well as fulfilling online orders for clients and stockists.
With the years gone by .. raïz .. has morphed and so did I. But zillions of tiny knots later, I keep crafting each piece .one knot at a time. with the utmost attention to detail to offer captivating pieces of jewelry with a poetic twist, with a soul.
Thank you very much if you are still reading to this point! I invite you to follow me on social media to peek into the ongoings of .. raïz ..
You can find me under @raizmacrame on Instagram & Facebook.
Take care!
Mélanie

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.
