Helene was born in Rive de Geir, France. She became a naturalized American citizen when she was 10. Her path has led through Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Arizona, Slovenia and Germany. She has resided in Booneville Mississippi for the past 15 years where she works out of her on premise studio. She and Ray, her late husband of 27 years have one son, Mark.While she has maintained a full time studio for the past eighteen years her experience also includes teaching pottery and silversmith, semi-precious stone carving/polishing, marketing, illustration and advertising.Her organic sculptures with their varied textures and colors echo the forms and colors of the earth. I love all colors and enjoy observing forms in our existence here — a seed bursting from the earth, a fish alive with it’s glitter of color, a microscopic pattern.My wish is that my work transfers these precious miraculous moments of life.~ HeleneHelene Fielder – Sculptures
Love Me Knots Designs, as a company, started about 5 years ago. We enjoyed selling locally to family and friends in the Northport and Tuscaloosa area.
In 2015, we met each other through our children’s soccer involvement. Between the two of us, we have 5 children. Being great friends and business partners has been a wonderful blessing for both of us!
Suzanne works full time as a Speech-Language Pathologist for the local school system and Christie is a stay-at-home mom in which she is very involved in the local schools and sports teams of her children. We enjoy traveling to local craft fairs and meeting new people. We currently have our merchandise in 4 stores in Alabama.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and our reasonable prices. We enjoy creating custom orders too! It is obvious that we love leather and pearls along with rustic metal and beads. Please contact us if we can make something special for you!

… is known as a Southern innovative artist. While staying “true” to her work, she is constantly evolving and creating new ideas in the art field. Ten years ago, Kendall gave up a successful interior design business to become a full time painter. Through that career change, she has become known throughout the southeast for her peaceful, yet sometime feisty style. Always using a type of texture in her work, Kendall loves to create movement in her pieces. Whether it be paste or stain or watercolor or abstract, Kendall creates a dance on her surfaces. As a wife, mother, and grandmother to 4 (almost 5), she loves to spend time with her family. When not painting, she enjoys traveling, tennis, golf, cooking, sewing and anything crafty!
