I met Karli Campbell Buxton of Knot + Bow Designs at Due South in Thomasville, Georgia. I was instantly beguiled by the colorful, sparkling gemstones and high quality craftsmanship of her work. And who could blame me? I’m still lusting after a few of these pieces!
After graduating, she moved to New York City and worked under fashion designer Don O’Neill of Theia. Despite loving the big city lights, Karli new that NYC wasn’t her forever home. She moved back to Georgia with her experience, her husband, Daniel, and their lab, Georgia, and began designing jewelry.
A true Southern girl, she loves the hospitality of the South that drew her back to Georgia, old Southern homes, and interior design. Good Southern cooking may have been part of the call back home, too.
Karli started making jewelry on the side while working at a boutique in Macon. She became so busy with selling jewelry that she couldn’t get her orders filled, and that’s when she knew it was time to take Knot + Bow Designs full-time. Now, she has her designs in over 70 retail locations, from Georgia to California and everywhere in between. Even with her success and growth, each piece of Knot + Bow Designs jewelry is still made by hand right there in Macon, Georgia by Karli herself. If these pictures don’t have you starry-eyed by now, I don’t know what will do it. Luckily, Karli has graciously offered to give away a pair of earrings to one of my readers! Now guys, don’t be shy – I know you know a lady who would love to win this jewelry giveaway, too!
These earrings would be perfect for any Seminole fans out there… The coral and pyrite make quite the statement! And the arrowheads aren’t just for Nole fans. As you can tell by her other pieces, arrowheads are on trend for anyone and everyone this season.
Because there’s always a catch! If you’d like to win this gorgeous pair of Knot + Bow earrings, just leave a comment below telling us how you would wear them, why you want them, or just that you think they’re real pretty.
