How is it made?
Macrame is the art of knotting cord or string to make decorative articles, in my case, jewelry. I use a special type of Brazilian polyester waxed thread and knot the thread around authentic semi-precious stones procured from various regions around the world.
Filigree is the other technique that I use, using a metal called "alpaca", also commonly referred to as nickel silver. Nickel silver is a copper-nickel-zinc alloy that contains no silver. It contains 50-80% copper, 5-30% nickel, and 10-35% zinc.
I also commonly use copper and bronze in my work.
The filigree consists of different fragments connected to each other and then hammered. My tools are hammer, pliers, and an anvil.
