Macrame Bezel Dragonfly Necklace


As promised, a photo of the micro macrame bezel that I have been working on for some time. I finally figured out how to get it to work and look smooth. The fun part of this technique is working on tying in all the loose cords. The stone, (some type of dyed bone or coral -awesome thrift store find!) is held in place entirely by the macrame cords. The pendant is also double sided, so it can be worn either way depending on my mood. Thinking I prefer the dragonfly charm side the best. This macrame necklace has a thin knotted cord with a bead closure. Happy knotter here.


Knotting Going On Here

Knotting going on here besides micro macrame bracelets. Working on a micro macrame bezel pendant piece and I’m thrilled to report that I finally wrapped my mind around how to wrap the knots around the anchor wire. I’ve only been trying to figure it out for about half a year. Photo posting to follow at a later date.

Micro Macrame Knot Yo Mama’s Way

This isn’t yo mama’s macrame from the 70’s. The updated version consists of using very fine cord for micro macrame knotting. This bracelet features a bright and delicate specialty button for the center piece, with neutral tan cord for the base. I love making these micro macrame bracelets because there are so many options for color combinations. It’s the perfect pastime for a color and fiber addict. Besides, a mama bird had decided to nest in my exhaust fan in my lampwork glass studio. I don’t have it in me to switch that fan on until the nest is empty and abandoned. It’s been a busy spring here in the desert.
