This is a crafty Challenge- challenged to learn myself a craft.
One of my friend wore a nice good looking bracelet. Only a few seconds it took and I found that it is a Macrame bracelet.
Macrame, I tried almost a year back with not so success. I tried with a thick thread(Malai Dori) and it was not forgiving.
The bracelet I made was not good and no idea where it is now.
This is what I made at that time.
Now little more knowledge of threads & yarn, I managed to buy the thread which is commonly called Purse/Mobile thread and can be effectively used for Macrame.
Next is for the beads, I bought a set of beads from commercial street.They are glass & heavy, their heaviness gives a nice feel to the bracelet.
So I followed this tutorial but started of at one end and finished at the other. The finishing, I followed the tutorial and it really gives a neat look.
I twisted the thread while moving the beads and so it kinds of twists otherwise it is quite stable & does not turn on wearing.
So glad I could do a Macrame wearable bracelet.
And after a while, I made a Macrame Chain also with the same beads.
