The New Macrame: Contemporary Knotted Jewelry and Accessoriesby Katie Dumont
Synopses & Reviews
This volume offers a completely modern application for the ancient craft of macrame: with new designs and innovative materials, this macrame is anything but retro. The collection of modern macrame designs explores alternative materials, such as waxed linen, copper wire, embroidery floss and macrame cord. Projects include jewellery, necklaces, earrings, belts, handbags and sculptures.
Elegant and exciting, all grown up and gorgeous, and definitely NOT what your mother would have done: believe it or "knot," macrame has gone beyond wall hangings and old-fashioned tacky crafts. Now it's for attention-grabbing jewelry, hot accessories, and other projects that sizzle with fresh colors, fashionable fibers, and fetching designs. Best of all, if you can tie your shoes, you can create any of these great-looking items. No expensive material to buy, no fancy equipment needed, and no experience required! The "Knots 101" course will show you how every stitch is done, so you can get started almost immediately on a fetching bracelet, anklet, and choker combo, with ancient seed beads and simple square knots. What are the "fringe benefits" of a macramed belt? It's easy to work, fun to wear, stylish, versatile, comfortable, and oh so accommodating to fluctuating waistlines. Plus: a "yuppie puppy" collar, enchanting amulet bag, bestseller bookmark, and a magical mystery marketing sack!
