Dress Up Your Outfit With A Statement Macrame Necklace
Statement jewellery can be a quick and easy way to dress up the simplest of outfits, and is a great way to mix up your look. Learn how to create your own statement macrame necklace with our easy-to-follow craft tutorial, created by Devon Coverdale, and add instant style to your look!
You Will Need:
- 10 Skeins of embroidery thread
- Approx 1m leather or suede cord
- 1 x statement bead
- 2m of macrame cord
- Jewellery pliers
- 1 x necklace fastening and fixings
Step-by-Step Woven Statement Macrame Necklace:
Cut 2 lengths of the leather/suede cord; 1 x 55cm and 1 x 45cm.
Take the shorter length and attach the statement bead.
Take a selection of the coloured embroidery thread and cut to approximately 10cm lengths.
Secure the bead in the centre by using wrapping knots around the main cord; working outwards, replicate on each side on the bead.
Cut the macrame cord into 10cm lengths and brush out. Separate the brushed out macrame fibres into 10 equal sections.
Secure the sections onto the longer length of suede/leather cord using the coloured thread to secure the tassel in place, and trim the tassels to a uniform length.
Using the necklace fastening, clamp the two different cords together; the statement bead should sit just above the tassel cord. Trim the ends of the suede/leather cord to adjust if necessary.
Attach the clasp and complete a final trim of the tassels to neaten.
Now you own a bold and beautiful statement macrame necklace, that you can proudly tell everyone – when they ask where you bought it – that you MADE yourself!
