Macrame Jewelry

By:

Use these techniques from The Bead Studio to make a unique macrame bracelet.

Materials:

  • Cord (hemp or waxed linen)
  • Beads (with large holes)

These instructions are for making a bracelet. If you would prefer to make a necklace or anklet you will need to adjust the cord lengths accordingly.

To begin - Measure wrist, cut 1 cord 9 times wrist size, and the next cord 3 times wrist size. Fold cords in half to find center. Tie an overhand knot ½″ from center loop with both cords together.

The longer cords will be the knotting cords. The shorter cords will be the filler cords.

Knotting is easiest when you mount your work on a board.

The basic knot is the square knot. Repeat the square knot or the half knot until you are ready to add beads. (See knotting guide below.)

Slide bead on the filler cords, continue knotting again. Repeat as desired.

To finish – at desired length tie another overhand knot and trim leaving 4-6 inches of fringe.

Tie on and enjoy.

Knotting Guide:

The Square Knot – One of the basics. A variety of patterns can be achieved with this knot.

Step A – Cord 1 goes over 2& 3 and under 4. Cord 4 goes under 2 & 3, then up through the loop. Pull tight.
