Welcome to my website and thank-you for visiting!

My name is Michelle Adams, but I’m more usually known as Shell, and I have the pleasure of living and creating in Caithness (which is located in the Far North Scottish Highlands).

This site is dedicated to my range of Hand-Tied Knotwork Jewellery. This range of jewellery was initially born from my desire to translate Celtic Knotwork designs into real knots and to create jewellery using nature’s materials as much as possible.

Each piece in the range is individually handmade by myself and features intricate hand-tied knotwork. Some pieces consist of knotwork alone, whilst others incorporate beautiful and unique wood – sourced locally and hand-shaped then taken to a wonderfully smooth, tactile finish and treated with natural oils.

Please use the Jewellery links to look at examples of the range. For those wishing to learn more about the decorative knots that I use and their common associations the Knots pages will be of interest. If you would like to order jewellery, have pieces tailor-made for you, or have any queries, then please feel free to contact me.
