Here you will find the general product information for all items created at K.D Jewellery.  You will also find specific instructions on caring for your K.D Jewellery pieces.

Introduction to Macramé

Macramé is the art of creating textiles using a variety of knotting techniques, rather than weaving or knitting. Micro-Macramé follows this general principle but on a much smaller scale. The threads used in micro-macramé patterns are often smaller than 2mm making the items created incredibly light and delicate with intricate patterns, perfect for creating gorgeous pieces of handmade jewellery.

Caring for your K.D Jewellery:

My jewellery is made with high quality nylon thread and is very durable. However, to ensure a long life for your items, please take note of the following:

  • Keep jewellery away from any chemicals, extreme temperatures or intense sunlight. Discolouration is not common but is possible.
  • Items should not be made wet for extended periods i.e. during swimming or showering. Prolonged exposure to water could cause the threads to loosen or start to fray.
  • Some items feature silver-plated or silver-tone charms or findings which can discolour or tarnish overtime. These components can be cleaned gently with a soft damp cloth.
