Today is the Reveal for the Diana Ptaszynski's Waxed Linen Blog Hop.
I am a Peruvian and I grow up around handmade macrame : bags, jewelry, hammocks, blankets,etc.
I learn how to make macrame in Elementary school, and the first thing I make was a bag for my books, very difficult stichs (knots) ...Let me tell you that I finish with the help of my Mom and my Sister...was a big job for a little girl...
Today I make a necklace and four bracelets and I need to confess that all I make it Today...my Son was having a dentist appointment,but I am always carry with my bag of things to make..He is 15 as he can go by himself inside ...so while I was waiting ...I make two of the bracelets with macrame..the blue, green and white waxed linen with the blueish beads on the borders and the pumpkin one:green waxed linen with orange beads , was super easy for me..and right now I just finish all the pieces...
|This is all the pieces that I make it Today. I am confident that I can finish the pieces, because working with macrame and kumihimo is the more easy thing on the world!!!|
Thanks to Diana for organizing this challenge!!
|This necklace is kumihimo technique (is bored!!!) ...and to make a little different I add wood beads inside , to balance the heavier of the beads I add some seed beads and ribbon. I make a little piece of macrame too.|
|This bracelet was made it with crossing stich and simple knots...of course using the waxed linen and some wood beads.|
|Bracelet made with knitting cord and adjustable knot.|
|Macrame knots, using three colors of waxed linen and adding seed beads on the edges. Adjustable knot.|
|This is the material I used to make this pieces of jewelry...kumihimo circle, knitting needles to make the green cord with the white skull, the main material:waxed linen and of course my seed beads...I can't live without seed beads.
