Southern Makers: Knot + Bow Designs + Jewelry Giveaway

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!

Karli loved clothes and accessories from a very young age, so when she got to Georgia Southern University, Fashion Merchandising was the only major that caught her eye and interest.  Knot + Bow Statement Rings | Oysters & Pearls Knot + Bow Rings | Oysters & Pearls

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.Knot + Bow Designs Statement Necklaces  | Oysters & Pearls

As evidenced by her work, Karli is inspired by raw stones and other natural elements.  Her current obsessions make their way into her designs each season.  Knot & Bow Designs at Due South Makers Market | Oysters & Pearls

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.  Knot + Bow Designs by Karli | Oysters & Pearls Knot + Bow Designs Statement Necklaces | Oysters & Pearls

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.Knot + Bow Designs Earrings | Oysters & Pearls Knot + Bow Designs NecklacesIf 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!

    I lived in the Tallahassee area for the first 32 years of my life. I have since moved to Oklahoma because I got married and love makes you do crazy things. I’d love the earrings to help spread my Seminole love among all these Sooners and Cowboys! Go Noles!

    How fabulous are these earrings?! Would love great with a white t shirt and jeans, or such a pretty pop against something turquoise (top or dress). The best part about all knot and bow jewelry is that it is perfection whether dressed up or down.

    I would wear these beautiful arrowhead earrings with cowgirl boots, skinny jeans, and a nice top or a pretty floral dress with my hair in a bun.

  5. Jessica

    I have been following Knot and Bow Designs for a while & I love just about everything she has created but unfortunately I can’t really afford any of it right now so winning these earrings would be such a blessing! Really hope I can win this time! :)
