Yes! Thursday already!

Hello lovely blogger friends.  Today is Thursday, which I love, because I get to link up with Danielle from Framed Frosting for Current Crush Thursday.

Current Crush Thursdays

My current crush comes from the WhatKnotShop and it is the Turks head knot sailor rope bracelets.
These bracelets are super cute and I am completely amazed at how they are made! 
The prices at the WhatKnotShop are very reasonable as well.

George Hutchinson is the amazing designer of this shop and here is what he has to say:
"I’ve always been fascinated with the making of turks head knots. The apparent complexity is really a well ordered expression of physical mathematics. Creating an object from a single piece of ordinary cord seems like magic. I like making these bracelets and wanted to see if there were others who liked them as much as I did. Turns out there are a few of you out there, welcome!
The design series of bracelets is inspired by traditional cultural ornamentation from remote tribal villages brought to the screen by National Geographic and many other photographers. The apparently unselfconscious expressions of these people speaks to our inner child in playful ways.
The designs are fascinating.
My materials are cord scraps, beads, and cotton floss. The designs are pure imagination, the sizes are as listed...After the regular zen like making of the turks head knots the more free form beaded confections are meant to be extra dramatic and wild."

  1. Thanks Britt! Your readers might see some sold out items in the shop from time to time as demand outstrips my ability to keep up. Rest assured that many of the bracelets can be made to order in both custom colors and sizes. Readers who may need some guidance on how to pick the correct size can check out this blog posting

    And of course I'm always happy to answer questions.
