The Evolution of Woodland Plaid

Micro macrame knotting by Sherri Stokey.

It seems the holiday season is upon us whether or not we agree that a year could possibly have passed since the last holiday season.  Red bows look pretty against bright green trees, but in jewelry I am not a big fan of those traditional colors, so I started playing around withmore muted versions.

I chose cool blue greens of spruce and softer berry tones.

I added some woodsy browns to ground the colors and ended up with these:

It's always fascinating to me how  the same beads can look so different when tied in another color of cord.  I also like to take the same combination of beads and cord and use it in different patterns.  For this one I used all three colors of cord together.

And I came up with a pattern that reminds me of a woodland plaid.  And that, of course, led me to add a woodland creature (from Dreams and Elements).

Now if the woodland elves would come get these things listed in my shop, I could get on with my holiday baking!


  1. Beautiful and such a great blend of colors.

  2. Beautiful. I love the colors in these soo rich. I admire your ability to do this small macrame. You are soo talented.

  3. These are so gorgeous. I absolutely love the bracelets with the "waves" design and the color and shapes beads you used. Are the waves pattern the same as the zig zag pattern. They look similiar, but the zig zag seems to have more beads and less knottting. Could you tell me what color, shape and size beads you used and where you bought them?


I'd love to hear from you!
