Have you ever seen a LUCET? This is an ancient tool used to make cord. It has been used for centuries since the Vikings to turn fiber thread into cord.

Today, this historic reproduction can be used to make bracelets, laces, earrings, ties - anything that decorative cord will make.

The lucet is easy to learn and portable. You can put it in your pocket and take your craft with you everywhere. It is fun, fast, and anyone can do it!

Use any ordinary embroidery floss, thread, yarn, string, thin decorative cords to make strong a strong, braided cord.

Be creative in what you can do with the cord that you make! Use it to make jewelry, embellish clothing, make fancy shoe laces, use it on accessories, quilts - the uses are only limited by your imagination! Great for making bracelets, necklace cords, earrings!

To see some great things made with one of these lucets take a look at my handmade neckcords for sale in my shop on Etsy!

This LUCET comes complete with an illustrated instruction booklet that we have self-published that will show you how to use it and what you can make with it.

The LUCET is handmade of hardwood. (Wood may vary) I cut, shape, carve, and finish the wood to create the Lucet based on a two hundred year old design. The lucet has been finished with a hard, hand-rubbed oil finish that brings out the luster of the wood.

In addition to hobby use, this lucet is historically accurate and is appropriate and correct for living history interpreters, reenactors, and SCA members. It is appropriate from the Renaissance through the American Civil War. Historically, the lucet was brought from Europe to America's first settlements in the 17th Century.

Revive an ancient art form. Simple, Easy, and Fun!

See photos for sample of cord made on this Lucet from six-strand sewing floss.

The lucet measures three inches by two inches.
