Suzen Millodot has always loved arts and crafts, and is the
author of the very successful books Chinese Knots for Beaded
Jewellery and Celtic Knots for Beaded Jewellery. She is an
accomplished artist, having taught batik for many years in Canada,
Hong Kong and Wales. She first developed a fascination for
decorative knots whilst living in Wales and later in Hong Kong.
Her jewellery now incorporates knots from all over the world and from all periods of history, and she complements the knots with unusual and exotic beads she has collected on her travels.
She and her husband now live in Wales very close to their daughter and grandchildren. She occasionally teaches and continues to make original jewellery and wearable art using knots and macrame.
Karenplatt.co.uk: The jewellery in this book is all inspired by the Celtic theme. Celtic inspired beads are used, but the basis of this book is on making cords for necklaces, rings and bracelets from Celtic knots. Eighteen fabulous projects are shown with easy-to-follow-, step-by-step instructions and clear photographs. You can create original jewellery with a Celtic theme. The book has a thorough introduction including a brief history, materials and equipment and how to dye your own cords. The knots might look complicated but there is no need to get yourself in a twist as the instructions could not be clearer. Start with a simple braid or plait and work up to the more challenging work. All who are interested in jewellery or Celtic work, will be entranced by this 80-page book.
