Crystals wrapped in hemp?
1 out of 1 members like this post. Like this post? Yes | No    

Does anyone have any idea how to make that part of a hemp necklace where a crystal is all wrapped up in hemp? Like this or anything of a similar effect:

I have some beautiful stones I would love to put in some necklaces but I don't want to drill holes in them, and I've been curious about this style for a while now. I don't know what the style is called, if anything, so it's awfully hard to google it. Any help is much appreciated

Hugs, love, and sunshine!

I don't personally know how to do it; but I'd imagine if you Google 'macrame' you'd find something. Most hemp jewellery is based on macrame knots.

Hope you can find what you are looking for.

Thank you, having a word to search for makes things much easier! I didn't know *that* was macrame (ooh, bad hippie! ), I'll go have a look!

Have made 'baskets' for crystals to wear around the neck so they point upwards instead of down (like when you tie them on a string) so you can take them out easily too.

Starts with 6 hemp strings divided into 3 pairs and plait them until it fits length-wise, making one tight knot on each end .. then knot the single strings together like one with the next ... and go round knotting crosswise so you get kinda pretty flexible net in any length you want ... make a tight knot at the bottom.

Start with 3 strings, tie them in the middle

Tie 2 strings together repeat for other 2 sets
P3121624.jpg
Continue with method
P3121625.jpg
After 3rd round measure the stone you want in and adjust the tightness of your knots to the stone
P3121626.jpg
It should fit snuggly without any large spaces where it may slip out.

Finish with tie a knot with all the strings to secure the stone and then continue with piece as normal. You can cut extra or add strings as needed.


Hope this helps

Awsome pattern

Wow, thank you! I made something with a similar idea but I ended up crocheting so much hemp around my crystal that it weights down the whole piece. I'm excited to try your pattern. Perhapps it will work better for what I'm looking for.
