Macrame adjustable puzzle piece autism awareness bracelet.

This adjustable macramé bracelet is made using coloured nylon rattail cord (in 1mm or 1.5mm thickness) and a silver tone puzzle piece connector which is often used to symbolise autism and promote autism awareness. It can be made in a variety of colours (more available than shown in the example pictures).
Please request which colour you would like in the “colour” option box and message me via the “Contact Craftie” option if you have a preference as to the thickness of the cord.

*MACRAME*

“Macramé” is a form of textile produced using knotting (rather than weaving or knitting) techniques. The primary knots of macramé are the square knot (a variant of the reef knot) and forms of “hitching”: various combinations of half hitches.
It was long crafted by sailors, especially in elaborate or ornamental knotting forms, to decorate anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships.

Macramé jewellery became popular in the early 1970s among the American young and old crowd. Using mainly square knots and granny knots, this jewellery often features handmade glass beads and natural elements such as bone and shell. Necklaces, anklets and bracelets have become popular forms of macramé jewellery.
Materials used in macramé include cords made of cotton twine, linen, hemp, jute, leather or yarn. Jewellery is often made in combination of both the knots and various beads (glass, wooden and so on), pendants or shells. “Friendship” bracelets that are often exchanged amongst schoolchildren are also made using this method.
“Shamballa” bracelets are a style of bracelet, which have been around for centuries. Shamballa bracelets are based on the traditional Catholic Rosary beads and were historically used to assist in meditation.
Real shamballa bracelets are made from shamballa beads which are threaded or knotted onto a cord by macramé knots, these are then pulled to close. The Shamballa beads can be any material from wooden and clay beads, to genuine diamond beads and intricately carved bone beads.

I am a qualified radiographer but unfortunately had to give up my much loved job in September 2011 when my lung problems really kicked off (after suffering multiple pulmonary emboli), resulting in frequent and lengthy hospital admissions.

One Christmas I was stuck in hospital, in a sideroom on my own, for 6 weeks so I started making earrings to pass the long lonely days. I then taught myself to make bracelets and necklaces and gradually moved on to bag charms and other gifts. These were very popular with staff, visitors and patients.

I carried on with my new hobby once at home as I was still unable to do much due to my severe lung disease leaving me very short of breath on exertion. Over the last 5 years my mobility has gradually declined and I am currently bed/wheelchair bound due to instability in my joints, as a result of Ehlers-danlos Syndrome, and my lungs only functioning at 25%. I’m on oxygen 24/7 and I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue.

Despite all this my brain is still active and therefore I get bored easily and so doing my jewellery helps to pass the time! I have many complex health conditions however I still try to do the best I can, although pushing myself to get out of the house one day results in a few days rest just to recover!
