This is my last post until we are settled on a new continent! My daughter and I leave next week, and I must pack my materials. I am looking forward to all the beautiful amber the Baltic Sea has to offer and exploring new markets. I won’t be away from the blog for too long because I know I can’t keep away from my cords and have already planned what to knot on the plane.
Two adjustable closure bracelets for today, made in thin brown nylon cord. The first with a single strand of gorgeous, metallic in color pearls. The second with two stands of onyx and coral.
I’ll be doing more posts like this, with a couple of knotted pieces per post. My family and I are moving to Europe and I am busy packing and cleaning and purging stuff. I still get to make jewelry everyday, just don’t have enough time to spend on the computer.:)
These pictures were taken on a palm tree leaf. I was packing some books and heard it fall outside the window. I went out and it looked so nice, I had to use it!
Raw amber and wood beads knotted in yellow waxed cord using the square knot with a buttonhole closure.
Black wood beads on white waxed cord knotted using the half knot sennit with a buttonhole closure.
Today, I made a bracelet with some brown, waxed cord that I found in my husband’s studio. I’m not sure if it was meant for macrame, but it was easy to work with and held the double half hitch knots well. I gave it a buttonhole closure.
