Jewellery Making! January 31st

Yesterday was the last day in January and the last activity on our January Lexis calendar was jewellery making! We all met in the student lounge at 11.30am. I had a basket full of amazing craft supplies including a range of beads, shells, glass stones, wire, feathers, threads and various types of macrame cord.

I showed the group how to make a crystal wrap necklace, using a macrame knotting technique. For this, we each chose one stone, then used 3 long lengths of cord to begin our piece. We then make a little net to tightly hold the stone and braided the remaining pieces to hang around the neck. It is a relatively simple technique but takes time and precision.

Everyone was free to either follow what I was doing or use their imagination and create their own individual piece. To get them on their way, I showed them some examples and some tips and tricks for tying adjustable knots. We had necklaces, bracelets and ankle bracelets!

 

After the crystal net was formed, everyone had their own method for holding the necklace in place while they braided/plaited the remaining strings!

 

The finished pieces looked amazing! They were all so different – some people added beads and different knots to personalise their own.
