North Clarendon, VT (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Tuttle Publishing and author artist Lydia Chen have collaborated to release their new book, Fun with Chinese Knotting. Similar to our macramé, the art of Chinese knotting has a surprisingly contemporary appeal. Chen focuses on the decorative uses of Chinese knots to create your own personal fashion accessories—hair ornaments, earrings, necklaces, pendants, brooches, belts, bracelets and anklets—as well as accents that may be added to items of clothing.
Detailed instructions, clear diagrams and lovely color photographs combine to make this book both attractive and useful—displaying the many creative uses these decorative knots can have, and the great variety of materials used to make them. The book is now available and can be purchase in bookstores and online at Tuttle Publishing or Amazon.
