Jute Jewellery

MAKE IT BIG, make it small

Jenny and Lucas take a trip on a marine railway. And then it’s back to the craft space to make some jute jewellery.




  • Jute
  • Scissors
  • 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.
