The New Macrame: Contemporary Knotted Jewelry and Accessories

Front Cover
Lark Books, 2001 - Crafts & Hobbies - 112 pages
2 Reviews
With new designs and innovative materials, the new macrame is anything but retro. This is macrame for the thousands of general crafters looking for another craft to enjoy. Readers learn the basics of knotting - only two main knots are required - and then explore new and handsome materials such as waxed linen, copper wire, embroidery floss, and macrame cord. The 30 projects are actually good-looking, and there's not a plant hanger in the bunch. Instead, there's jewelry, belts, a purse, even a dog leash and collar. Projects are appropriate for beginners and experts, adults and, occasionally, children. An inspiring gallery from jewelry, bead, and fiber artists help spark creativity and even admiration.
