Funkadelic Art is a project of Katharina and Thomas, a young couple from Upper Austria. They are making beautiful macrame jewelries with natural stones, crystals and bone elements.
The name comes from the German word “Funken” which means sparkles. The sparkles between the love of them two. Their beloved van is called Funky so they combined those two words, resulting Funkadelic Art.
Katharina and Thomas are both funky creative heads. Doing Stringart deco for a very long time and jewelry for 2 years now. It’s their hobby, their passion. They are learning different techniques from each other and grow together.
From the gifts of nature
They love to combine crystals with bones and wood of all kinds. Creating macrame jewelry with healing attributes (she spends a lot of time studying stones and their attributes) from the gifts of nature brings them happiness. “I’m fascinated by the fact that I can use the same knot for all kind of different patterns” says Katharina.
Creating jewelry brings balance into our lives
Creating their magic knot art is a great balance from their work life. It allows them to live their creativity and knotting for hours is meditation they say.
They love to go outside, listen to the sounds of nature while creating their art.
We put a lot of positive energy into our work
Katharina is fascinated by minerals and their effects on the human body. Since she was a small girl crystals played a big role in her life and on her health. She says that it’s very important to put a lot of positive energy whilst knotting their jewelries. People can feel the energy of the different stones and they instinctively grab the piece they most need at that moment. She received a lot of positive feedback from her clients who suddenly had a better sleep or felt better after wearing one of the healing stones.
They are using “Linhasita” yarn in all kinds of colors. The stones are always fair trade. The crystals are from Austrian crystal tracer. All bones they use are found in the nearby forest.
