The large macrame bracelet I mentioned in the last post is finished. I don’t have a complete clasp for it yet though.
I’m very happy with it. It looks great even though there is one small mistake in it. But you’d have to look real close to even see it.

The design is from CSLdesigns. I think her name is Christina. She is very talented and a great teacher. She does a mix of wirework, kumihimo and micro macrame. The tutorial for this design can be found here.

I liked this design so much I made another smaller bracelet in red.

I made this Russian Spiral rope following this video tutorial from Beadaholiqe. I like the design but I have a feeling this will break quite easily. The bugle beads have sharp edges and even though I used thick Fireline to stitch this rope I think that if used for a bracelet, the bugles will eventually cut through the thread.

All of the these micro macrame pieces are from the tutorials of Artemanual on YouTube. This channel is (I think) in Spanish but the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I used his tutorial to make my owl earrings a while back.

I made this, would be earring, but I didn’t like it so I never made another one. I found this tutorial on Pinterest, linking to this.

thebeadedweek2015_06nMacrame School has a great macrame channel on YouTube. I made this little heart following their tutorial which you can find here.

I used chinese knotting cord for this one.

I made this little starfish, just because. I don’t know where I got this from. I snapped a picture of this before I started this blog and I don’t remember where I saw it so I can’t give you a link to the tutorial. I looked at the picture and figured out how to make one, pretty much. So the design is not mine but I made this little guy in the picture right here.

And finally, this is the Tapestry bracelet, a new design from beadshop.com. I still don’t have a clasp for this one but I think it looks very nice.

In other news, a ice-cream shop just opened up across the street. Oh boy!

And that’s all for now. Thanks for reading! ♥
