Ammonite and Gemstone Macrame Necklaces

Just returned for a great road trip vacation in the southwest. Always on the look out for rocks, gems and minerals during my travels. Visited several, well stocked rock shops in Colorado and Utah. Also managed visits to Mesa Verde, Monument Valley, Four Corners, Great Sand Dunes and Canyon De Chelly Parks. All are breathtakingly scenic. Using some of my finds this week to create  macrame necklaces.

Scarab Macrame Necklace

“In ancient Egyptian religion, the sun god Ra is seen to roll across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls. Beetles of the Scarabaeidae family (dung beetle) roll dung into a ball as food and as a brood chamber in which to lay eggs that are later transformed into larvae. For these reasons the scarab was seen as a symbol of this heavenly cycle and of the idea of rebirth or regeneration. The Egyptian god Khepri, Ra as the rising sun, was often depicted as a scarab beetle or as a scarab beetle-headed man. The ancient Egyptians believed that Khepri renewed the sun every day before rolling it above the horizon, then carried it through the other world after sunset, only to renew it, again, the next day. ” (source Wikipedia)

Macrame Stone Pendants

Staying cool and tying some knots. This macrame bezel technique is easy and versatile. I suspect I’ll have lots of fun looking for gemstones and rocks to wrap.

Enjoy your summer.

Love the Color Turquoise

Yet again, a little taste of the southwest. Believe it or not, the most difficult part of this project was drilling the holes in the small beads to accommodate a thicker, double cord.

Joshua Tree Inspiration

One of my favorite plants in the Mojave Desert is the Joshua Tree.

I was playing with polymer clay and was inspired to make a few pendants.

This one has the “ghost” of a Joshua Tree design.

Matches up well with this macrame necklace I knotted.

I’m liking this new-to-me design for the necklace.

Enjoy the spring sunshine.
