Year of Jewelry Week 18 - Pantone 2013

C-lon bead cord in Pantone Vivacious fuchsia range

The "assignment" for this week in the Year of Jewelry was to make something in one of the Patone colors for 2013.  I chose Vivacious, a bright shade of fuchsia which is part of the  Pantone Fall 2013 Color Report.  I wanted to do some ombre shading, so I chose the cord range in the photo above.  So far, so good.

 I messed around with the curvy pattern again - its sinuous lines really intrigue me and the shading is such fun.  If you follow my blog and saw my last crash and burn on this pattern, you'll be glad to see I started with LOTS of cord this time.  (If you don't read my blog regularly, you can find out what I'm talking about in this post.)

Oh, and the "failure" piece?  You don't have to worry about him any more - he found a home with a lady who has a 5.25" wrist.  All's well that ends well.

  1. These bracelets are gorgeous and the colour combinations are great.

  2. I am from Italy and till now macramè for me was only fringes !! It's the only thing I'm able to do ....
    I would like to be able to make such a wonderfull bracelet !
    Thank you for your blog and for sharing these wonderful pictures

  3. I am always so amazed with your work! I love them both.

  4. Hi, really nice work, I face most of the time problems with the length of the threads, how can I be sure with the length I need fro my macrame project? please help, thank you

    1. I don't know of any magic formula, sorry. It varies based on how dense the knotting is, and the pattern you're doing. I obviously don't always get it right, either!


I'd love to hear from you!
