All Tied Up

I was struck by the simple elegance found at CLineCreations, an Etsy shop. After riding the C-Line in Brooklyn back and forth to work, this artist enjoys relaxing with inspiration, her paints, and brightly colored Chinese silk cords. Jess has taken traditional Chinese knotting techniques and brought them into the 21st century with her own creative twist. She not only crafts hair ornaments in a wide array of beautiful color combinations, but she designs custom silk cord jewelry that is sure to be admired.

Her other passion is traditional Chinese brush painting, and she has several inspired artworks ready to be a calming focal point for any room. Wanting her artwork to be accessible, she has created a line of hand-painted cards. What a welcome treat these uniquely handcrafted cards will be with your message inside. If you would like a set of cards, contact Jess for a bulk rate.

Jess ties her knotted creations in New York and ships internationally. If you see a style of knotting that you like, but prefer a different color, please contact her and she will be pleased to make a custom order if the color is available.
