Swallowtail Butterfly Knot Charms Now Available!

These butterfly charms have become my instant new favorite, as I’m sure they will be yours.

Butterflies are recognized the world over as symbols of joy, life & love. These beautiful butterflies are knotted in the Chinese tradition, with a central Mystic Knot. Otherwise known as the Pan Chang, this knot dates back thousands of years in Asian culture, and is considered one of the eight Buddhist treasures. An extremely auspicious symbol, the Mystic Knot is said to bring happiness both to the wearer, as well as all who view it.

The wings of the butterfly are interwoven with Josephine Knots (or Carrick Bends), a well-recognized Celtic knot representing true love. The tails of the butterfly feature an additional Josephine Knot, along with Chinese Button Knots and metallic accent beads.

Measuring about 3 inches long, and made out of a single strand of 2mm satin cord in a gorgeous redwood brown, this swallowtail charm is the perfect centerpiece for any necklace!

And lucky, I just happen to have matching necklaces!  Made of high quality complementary satin cord, these clasp-free necklaces are completely adjustable, making them great for all ages. Just pull on the necklace to open (don’t worry, it’s sturdy!), then pull the central knot apart to re-close.  The center of the necklace can be looped through most charms or pendants for an instant new look, making this necklace the ultimate in versatility.

Both of these great items are currently for sale in my Etsy shop, and they have already become a high-demand item locally.  They’re absolutely gorgeous and ornate, and look fabulous on women of all ages, so make sure to pick one up today!  And remember, I can always fulfill custom color requests, just ask!

Origami Rock ‘n Roll Cubes (and other items on Etsy)

Way back when people still bought CDs, I always tried to insist on keeping the booklets.  But now that CDs are mostly irrelevant, the actual discs have been passed on, and I found myself with a heap of perfectly square, colorful paper which are perfect for origami.  Since this discovery, a few of my friends have donated their kindred heaps . . I intend to make great use of them, and this is the first piece!

This four inch modular origami cube is dedicated to the laser light shows of classic rock.  It is constructed from two complete CD booklets from Pink Floyd’s classic Dark Side of the Moon album.  Each square of paper is folded into a basic rectangular shape (with starburst detail), and arranged in an interlocking pattern which is incredibly stable and needs no glue!  This is truly an awesome piece of art for any Pink Floyd or classic rock fan, and is currently available on Etsy.  Of course, due to limited supplies, this is one-of-a-kind, so first come, first serve!

Speaking of which, the Amigami Etsy shop is slowly increasing it’s stock.  In addition to the Rock Cubes, I have a tiny sampling of other origami and knot work jewelry, as well as crochet hip bags which are great as phone pr camera cases.  Please check them out, and thanks for your support!
