Description

Suzen Millodot illustrates the versatility of a few simple macrame techniques and creates twenty imaginative designs and great alternative ideas using braids, cords and beads. She includes patterns for two easy knots: the square knot and the lark's head knot, showing how to tie them in different ways using just four cords, and combines them with beads to make stylish necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Repeat one knot and complement the cord with contrasting beads to make eyecatching bracelets. Interweave cords of different colours and create trendy necklaces, or vary the position of the knots for an original look. This up to date look at macrame techniques offers crafters and jewellery makers fresh, inspirational ideas and takes an exciting look at a traditional craft. Step-by-step instructions are accompanied by close up photographs of all the designs and material lists provide all the information needed to create beautiful jewellery.show more

Review quote

May 09 If you associate macrame with the 70s and all that conjures up then think again, for here is macrame reinvented for the new millennium. Micro macrame uses thinner cords and vibrant fashion colors, so you can forget about hippy hemp and chunky styles. You can also forget about some of the far more complex macrame knots used in other new books on this subject; this truly is a book for beginners and a grand place to start. Anybody who has recently been keen on Scoubidou will know most of it already, and allied with a few choice beads and other components can make some fun, fashionable pieces. There are necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings and a watch strap to choose from, and as with the other titles in this series each of the twenty projects also has another idea on the same page, making it up to forty. Anybody who has enjoyed Suzen's other books (also reviewed on this site) will recognize both Chinese and Celtic influences as well as nods to Scoubidou and other trends. The diagrams are clear and easy to follow, and you can plenty of practice using mainly one stitch to make each piece, as well as getting a chance to experiment with different cords. This is definitely staying on my keeper shelf as the simplest - and cheapest - micro macrame book around. Myshelf.com July/Aug 09 Macrame has come back into favour with crafters and Suzen Millodot has used her knowledge of the technique to create micro macrame -stylish jewellery using macrame knots.

You can choose from necklaces, pendants, earrings, rings, bracelets, a watch strap and lovely knotted cords - each the perfect way to learn this technique. Classic Stitchesshow more
