Simplicity Update

Macrame textile pendant on rubber cord by Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame

Isn't it funny how we sometimes see something without really looking at it?  I had a vision of this piece, or I should say, I had a vision of the pendant part of this piece.  I made that happen and put it on a chain and the result was fine.  And then a friend of mine whose opinion I can always trust, mentioned that she wasn't crazy about the chain.  So I went back and really looked at the overall design of the piece and discovered I agreed with her.  I replaced the chain with a rubber cord.  Here's a side by side comparison:

It makes a huge difference in the overall look of the piece, doesn't it?  I didn't even know I was unhappy with the first piece until I saw the second take on it!  It's good to have friends who will give you honest opinions.  Thank you, Bianca!

This was also a good lesson for me to stay focused on ALL the details of a piece because they ALL matter.

  1. Wow - it really does make a difference! It was nice before, but now it really pops and you notice the knotting of the pendant so much more.


I'd love to hear from you!
