TWO New Micro Macrame Tutorials!

Marquise Micro Macrame Cuff by Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame

Yes, I know it's been over a week since I last posted, but in my defense, I have been busy.  I finished not one, but two new micro macrame tutorials!  I finally finished one for the bracelet in the photo above - the one I've been promising for a couple of months now.  I couldn't decide what to call it, because "Funny Little Pointed Elliptical Shapes Micro Macrame Bracelet Cuff"  just seemed to be missing something.  I finally figured out that those shapes look like a marquise cut stone and logically, if somewhat predictably, named the class "Marquise Micro Macrame Cuff".  It's a little more manageable.  I have included something like 110 still photos and 5 videos along with step by step instructions and narration.  No matter what method of instruction works best for you, it's in there!

To give you a little taste of my teaching style, here's an example of one of the videos showing how to mount the cords to get started on this design:


The Marquise bracelet is a bit of a challenge.  It only uses a couple of knots, but it takes some concentration to keep track of the cords and make sure you are working with the correct ones.  If you don't think you're ready for that, I also did an easier class:

The Micro Macrame Stack Bracelet Class is easy enough for beginners.  It looks like a stack of several bracelets, but it's really one easy-to-wear piece.  I love how the simplicity of the square knots really lets the colors take center stage.  The bracelet I made while taking photographs for the class was done in five graduating shades for an ombre effect, but you can vary the color scheme to fit your style.  Try springy pastels or a bright colorful rainbow or experiment with adding beads into the mix.  You can even substitute a different knot and make a bracelet like this:

The nice folks over at CraftArtEdu.com are celebrating the release of my two new classes with a super duper sale through the weekend.  You can find the details here.  Happy knotting!

  1. Beautiful bracelets! I really think that I prefer the simplicity of the second one. I have picked up a couple of your classes though I need to find the time to actually watch them.

  2. I want to make all of them and I see so many possibilities. Thank you for the Marquise bracelet. I am trying to decide which to start. I did order the bar clasps. Thank you so much for all your time and effort that you put into the classes so that we can create also.
