The Non Slip Loop Knot. The strongest loop knot you can tie. Used by big game anglers worldwide. Easy to tie, far stronger and more reliable than the old fashioned strangulating figure eight knot that can substantially weaken line.
Necklace by Michael Pelamidis, owner and designer of APARTE Jewellery, based in Greece. The design was inspired by the Century French courtesan La Païva. The necklace is part of his 2014 Autumn/Winter Jewellery Collection. (not so subtle pearl necklace)
