New Beaded Micro MacrameTutorial
I have finished "Waves Bracelet"! See photo. I included instructions on expanding this bracelet into a choker, and on how to make matching earrings. So, this tutorial is more than a pattern! I am listing it in electronic copy or paper copy.
This elegant design is a fairly easy one to make and would be good for beginners. The only 2 knots used are the Square Knot and the Overhand Knot. The trickiest part is the finish, but even that is not that difficult. It just requires a little practice and dexterity. Don't worry, I show you how in the tutorial.
As with all my basic designs, there is lots of room for creativity. Just vary the colors, the focal beads, the number of seed beads, etc and get a different look.
As always, I provide continued support in case you have questions regarding the pattern instructions. I have a website Knotgypsy Designs Workshop specifically set up for this purpose. I have opened a small forum for questions and answers, as well as general discussion of beading and micro macrame. There is also a contact form you may use to contact me directly. This will be my third published tutorial, and therefore the forum is not yet very active. Maybe you will be the one to break the ice!
I am also listing a couple of kits of supplies for those who just want to try one out before going out and buying everything in quantity. The kits will probably be listed tomorrow, as I have been working on this tutorial all day, it's late and I am tired. Find the tutorials tonight in My Etsy Shop. Look for the kits after tomorrow evening. Happy Beading.
Speaking of beading, I have a project I want to get started on...Scarlet calls.
