Description

Create beautiful macrame projects that invoke the sacred elements of Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit.


The idea of classical 'elements' is common to many belief systems including Ancient Greek, Egyptian, Babylonian, Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as Chinese and Japanese philosophies. The five elements of the Pagan religion Wicca represent the five points of the pentagram, a powerful sacred symbol. No matter what your beliefs, paying attention to the forces of nature can bring a greater sense of spirituality and calm to your life, which is equally true of the craft of macrame, which like all handicrafts has proven benefits for wellbeing.


This unique and beautiful book celebrates each of the Earth's sacred elements with projects that even beginners to macrame can tackle with ease. In nature, each element has its own specific properties, colours and stones associated with it, which these projects incorporate to dramatic effect. The 20 projects include mooncatchers, wall hangings, home accessories and jewellery, which all draw their inspiration from nature and the elements. Many of the projects have crystals incorporated into them, for the good vibrations and healing energy they bring. You'll also learn how to dip-dye macrame for wonderful ombre effects and work with a variety of different coloured cords to bring beauty and interest to your pieces.


Make a tree of life hoop to connect with the earth, a mooncatcher to protect you during sleep, a hanging fruit bowl to feed and nourish you, and a plant hanger to purify your air. Make a necklace to bring out your inner goddess, a crystal suncatcher to capture your fire, or some coasters for your altar candles to sit on. With 20 projects to choose from you will find a whole host of ways to enjoy macrame in a new intentional, spiritual light.


Author Rebecca Millar is best known as the creator of Vanir Creations, who has amassed a huge online following for her dreamy macrame hoops and moon catchers. Entirely self-taught, Rebecca now generously shares her secrets in this book, which demystifies the craft with simple explanations of the knots and techniques required.
