I’ve always wanted to find a good way to secure and exhibit an object for jewelry. Wire-wrapping was interesting but often clunky and attention-taking. But after a tip from an exhibitor I met at a show in Cambridge, I started exploring macrame techniques. Most of those were too clunky as well, but when I figured out the general concept I was able to develop a more delicate technique that worked for my projects.
The stones are from my collection; I’ve picked them up on beaches here in New England as well as Long Island and North Carolina.
On the last trip to North Carolina I also started playing with agglomerating stones together. The process is time-consuming but I’m enjoying how it’s coming out.
One idea I’ve been playing with is to put them together in a larger necklace form, but there’s also other directions this could go as well.
