I've been working hard on a new tutorial for this spiral rope in micro macrame and I'm happy to announce it's finished and available! In plenty of time for you to make a few Christmas gifts, or maybe just something for yourself. This tutorial is an eClass at CraftArtEdu. Their platform works really well for a class like this, because in addition to lots of step-by-step still photos, I can add video. And I added lots of videos.
I made up some festive holiday bracelets to show you some of variations, but don't be fooled. The spiral rope can be used all year long in lots of projects. In the pieces above, I used art beads by Lisa Suver (peppermint bead) and Barbara Handy (white snowflake and red/white/green charm). I wish I could remember who did the pretty lampwork in the last piece, but if anyone knows, help me out. The ones below feature a lampwork dragonfly bead by Nikki Rogalski and a polymer swirl bead by Peg Montieth.
You can even make it a bit longer and use it for a necklace. I added some links with Czech glass, recycled African glass and Greek ceramics, but I left the knotting to be the star of the show.
