  • One Word Stamped Necklaces By Knotty Origami

    Think about it. 

    If you wore ONE WORD around your neck, what would it be?

    It's a question I asked, recently, and found the most uplifting responses!  

    "Survivor", "Warrior", "Blessed", "Mentor", "Student", "Daddy", "Om", "Calm", "Fight", "Inspire"....

    So many beautiful words, and so many ways to represent what is important to you.


    Knotty Origami is offering "One Word" Stamped Necklaces now!  

    They come in rhodium-finish and gold-finish. 

    Each necklace is hand-stamped and hammered for a pretty finish and suspends from an 18" chain.  

    Check out the "One Word" chosen by others below!  (Yes...some of the stamps have 2 words...haha!  As long as it met the 10 character limit, we stamped it.)

    Or maybe your "One Word" is your own personal Hashtag or Social Media Handle!

  • The Malaysian Coral Snake Choker

    It's Here!

    Malaysian Coral Snake Choker By Knotty Origami

    I was struck by the beautiful coloration and patterns of The Malaysian Coral Snake!

    Just love how it turned out after a few weeks of designing, beading, and braiding!

    Here's a short video of the process to get to the finished piece!  You won't find a listing for this item in The Knotty Origami Store.  This will be heading to the art gallery soon!

    If you're interested in a similar piece, you can email me at


    Stay Knotty!
