Artist Showcase - Loren Damewood

BACK TO INDEX

Loren Damewood began his interest in the art of knot tying over half a century ago, and has spent the last few decades turning knots into fine jewelry, using precious and/or refractory materials (silver, gold, titanium, and steel) to create rings, bracelets, and even articles of clothing.

His favorite thing to do is to craft matched wedding rings, delighting in the symbolism of rings that exemplify "tying the knot".

In recent years much of his time has been occupied with teaching, and creating instructional materials to introduce others to whatever level of knot-tying suits their fancy, from showing kids how to make their own simple cotton Turk's-head bracelets to the intricate and challenging techniques required to turn a piece of wire into a magnificent and eye-catching article of jewelry.
