The macrame bracelet: a unique accessory to enhance your look or a perfect gift symbol of friendship
For those who love manual activities, the macrame knot technique may just be a new challenge on your creative soul path. In fact, making an object out of rope or thread is not that complicated, once the main knots have been mastered. On the other hand, you will see in the following examples that with each type of knot we can make many beautiful models..
Tip: If you are new to macrame art, we recommend that you start by making a wall decoration because the cords used are of larger diameter so they are easier to work with. As for the making of jewelry, we use finer threads and we speak more of a micro macramé.
Jewelry making is a superb way to fill your free time with a productive and fun activity
Make a pretty white bracelet with a flat knot twisted by welovehandmade
- tie wire 2 x 50 cm
- tie wire 2 x 100 cm
- black pearl and scissors
Steps to follow :
- We start by laying the four threads on a smooth surface (the two shorter threads in the middle). Tie a knot to assemble them and secure the threads with a clip or tape.
- Then, we make a flat knot: take the left thread and form a loop by passing it through the two threads in the center. Take the right thread, pass it over the left thread, then under the two threads in the center and finally it goes into the loop. Pull both ends. Do the same with the right thread.
- Now turn the clip over and tie another flat knot.
- Repeat the previous steps 7.8 times.
- Next, thread a bead on one of the strands in the center. Continue braiding around the bead and tighten the knot.
- Keep braiding until the end.
The flat knot is a basic knot that plays the main role in many creative projects for making hyper original bracelets.
Thin and elegant bracelet with the flat knot, tutorial by abeautifulmess
- 5mm wire
- blank drilled with 2 holes
To make this stylish bracelet, we will use the same flat knot technique. We start by cutting two threads of the same length. The threads are passed through the holes of a drilled blank for a bracelet (one thread per hole). Then we take a third thread and start to tie a flat knot with the thread in the first hole of the blank. Braid 5.6 cm and do the same on the other side of the bracelet (with the wire in the other hole).
