Elegant Colourful Macrame Bracelets

August 31, 2013

I made these simple macrame knot bracelets recently as I loved the colours of the knotting cord and wanted to make some thinner more elegant bracelets than my usual chunky beaded ones.

It was a struggle to get the tiny gold plated spacer beads onto the cord at first, and then I remembered the trick my friend Sally (who owns The Beaderie in Cambridge) uses of putting nail polish on the end of the cord to make it stiffer. Once I had done that it was a doddle to quickly thread the beads on and then tie the macrame knots either side of them and add a slider knot fastening at the end to get them open and closed.

 

I like them. What do you think? If you fancy making some like this you can buy everything you need online at the Beaderie.

You will need 2 metres of this nylon Chinese knotting cord which costs 20p per metre and a pack of these gold plated spacer beads (50 for 95p).  Of course you could make them with any beads along the middle, or even with a long tube bead instead. Happy jewellery-making!
