Most of Coco’s macrame necklaces have a large central cabochon and that is where he begins his knotting work. He first weaves a net-like bezel out of “hilo encerrado,” a waxed fiber from Brazil made by Linhasita. He then places the stone within the woven fiber encasement, pulls tightly and knots it closed to secure the stone. From there he knots and weaves his design outward and adds more stones for embellishment. Each macrame necklace contains thousands of minute knots and takes anywhere from 3 – 100 hours, depending on the complexity of the design.
