Jenny and Lucas take a trip on a marine railway. And then it’s back to the craft space to make some jute jewellery.
- Trinket or stone for necklace
How to make it
Step 1: For a necklace, cut four lengths of jute at least 30 inches or 75cm long
Step 2: Take one piece of jute and fold in half. Using the looped end, tie a loop knot that will be large enough to support the bottom of your stone or trinket. Take a second piece of jute, fold in half and make a reef knot in the first loop. Repeat with the other two pieces.
Step 3: You will have created a square with four knotted corners. Place your stone or trinket into the square to see if it is the correct size.
Step 4: Pulling one piece of jute from one corner and another piece from an adjacent corner, tie into an overhand know leaving an appropriate amount of space. You can use a pencil or your finger as a spacer. Repeat with remaining jute and test with your trinket or stone.
Step 5: One you have tied as many knots as you need to secure your object, tie all strings in a knot at the top the of stone or trinket tightly.
Step 6: Finish the necklace by braiding, tying knots or adding beads to the jute.
