Rope Tricks

The lovely thing about having a blog is getting to meet all sorts of people that you might not ever meet otherwise. I essentially was introduced to Pam Liou through blogging, and got to know her while we were doing a DIY or DIE event together at Urban Outfitters a few years back. Pam had just started working on her line of knitted chain jewelry, Langoliers, and for the event, she demonstrated how to knit your own chain bracelet. A lot has happened since for Pam, and after partnering with our friend Zon, the pair spent the past year developing the collection into a full-fledged line, finding production help to create the intricate handmade pieces. Named after the aliens from a Stephen King novel, Langoliers is built on the foundation of the knit chain pieces that Pam started with. To complement these free-form, draping designs, there are cuffs cast from crochet, pieces where solid metal castings are interwoven with loose chain, and a sturdy brass breastplate that hangs from knit cord. I love how the entire collection centers around treating metal like yarn, or conversely turning yarn into metal, and all of the pieces play beautifully with this theme.

These are stunning! I love the gold piece...the ones with the mess of chains almost crocheted! do you know where they are sold?

This was the fall preview so it probably won't be in stores until next season. However, I know that Langoliers has previously sold at Odin and OAK, so you should definitely check and see if they will be stocking it again!

I've seen a few jewellery designers explore knitting and crocheting techniques before but never as fine as this or with as much detail.

Wow, it's delicate but... also not. Amazing!
