“I chose this name for my art because the process of making my creations is a very meditative experience for me. It makes me feel like a tree spreading her roots into the Earth. I end up feeling very grounded after finishing each piece. Every new piece I make is unique and holds a specific memory of a time, place, feeling that I experience while creating it. All my packaging pouches are made from upcycled materials and designed in a way so that they can be reused.”- Veda

Macrame jewellery is an art of knotting threads together with precise geometric patterns and mathematical calculations. It originated from Arabic weavers who used it to make table cloths, curtains, fringes for shawls, veils etc. but then eventually macrame jewellery made from very delicate threads came up to be much more popular.
