Shana Bertetto – Crestwood, KY macramé necklace and earring set

Shana works with a South American fiber technique called Micro-Macramé: intricate hand weaving & knotting. Shana uses waxed thread from Brazil and semi-precious gemstones to create sculptural, comfortable, durable fiber statement jewelry. Each piece contains thousands of knots tied by hand and hundreds of individual threads. Although dimensional, Shana’s pieces contain no internal wire nor glue. They are pure thread. A piece can take anywhere from 6-40 hours to create. Shana learned the foundations of this meticulous craft while living in South America over the course of 10 years. They fell in love with the slow and rhythmical process and the meditative space that emerges through quiet repetitive knot tying. When Shana incorporates findings & chains, they also handcraft them using brass and copper wire.
