Neon is a fun trend this summer. I've seen all kinds of new neon beads, and best of all - neon bead cord! Both C-lon and Superlon have come out with neon cord in four colors and it's available in both the regular size (.5mm) and the heavier Tex 400.
I chose the Tex400 and started playing around with the Micro Macrame Curves Tutorial. For the bracelet shown above, I combined the neon yellow and neon green with aqua cord and I really like the result. The brighter neon colors elevate the aqua to the point where it almost looks like neon also. Then I combined neon orange with neon pink and ran a dark grey down the center to ground the colors a bit. Both of these bracelets scream summer!
I also experimented with adding just one neon element. For this next one, I used grey and black and then just a pop of the neon yellow.
Thankfully my knotting ability is better than my photography skill - these really do look better in person. In my defence, the neon cord is really bright!
For all you "do it yourselfers", if you'd like to try your hand at making your own neon macrame bracelets, you will find the tutorial and DIY kits for all three of these color combinations in my Etsy shop.
Viva la Summer!
