Waxed Linen Jewelry Blog Hop

"What comes around, goes around!" Or is it "What goes around, comes back around!"

Wax Linen was very popular back in the 60's & 70's.
It is making a come back! :))))

Thank you  Diana Ptasnyski of Suburban Girl Studio  for putting on this wonderful blog hop! It has been a walk down memory lane for me. I haven't used waxed linen since the early 70's when I took a jewelry making class as a freshman in high school. I even found some of my old waxed linen, clay beads, & jewelry from then!

For this project, though, I used new linen in 4 colors & paper beads from Africa in a macrame bracelet. Added in are a few silver beads left over from several remade projects for my sister-in-law & niece.

I'm off to Blog Hop --- Care to join me!

  2. Now that is a fun and fabulous bracelet!!! Thanks for participating!

  3. Hi Karla, your bracelet is very colorful and summery to me. Great job using waxed linen.

  4. Wow, what a happy, colorful bracelet! Once I started using waxed linen, I realized a friend had given me a whole spool years ago. At that time, I had no idea what it was. Once I knew what I had, I was thrilled. I'm still using it!

  5. So much fun! Love the colors, and dangles...awesome tribal look!

  6. Karla- I love the paper beads and thread together . It has the stylish tribal look to it.

  7. Love, love, love this piece. Love the use of the paper beads and colors you used. I love the beginning (or ending) really interesting and the dangles - I happen to be a big fan of the tribal look so this is definitely right up my alley.

  12. Ohhhh, it's dangly. I like dangly jewelry. The colors are fun.

  13. Karla, what a FUN bracelet! The paper beads are a wonderful compliment to the waxed linen. I love how you incorporated them in different pattern combinations of the knotting. Bravo!!

  14. I love how multi-dimentional this piece is. The paper beads look great and I love the different knotting techniques you used.
