A brand new micro macrame tutorial hit my Etsy shop today - a bracelet I'm calling Peacock. I don't know if I'm always making "eye" motifs or if I just see eyes everywhere, but that's what I see in this bracelet. Between that and the colors, Peacock seemed a good fit. Skipping Stones was also in the running. Doesn't it sort of look like this?
No matter what you want to call it, I'm calling it "finished"! I always want to put out the best tutorial I can. I want a person who isn't familiar with micro macrame to be able to be successful following on of my tuts, so I include lots of detail. This one is 23 pages and includes over 60 photos. I set the bar pretty high for myself, so when I get one to the point where I feel like it's ready for you guys to see, it's a big deal!
This pattern is fun and has loads of potential for color manipulation. I used four different colors of cord and three colors of seed beads (and all the details are included in the tutorial - even the bead color numbers for this version). I'm too lazy to do the math, but I do know that leaves you LOTS of color combinations to explore.
I've got a couple of color ideas in mind, so I'm off to experiment. If you decide to do the same, this link will take you to my Peacock Bracelet tutorial. And be sure to stop by my Facebook page and show me what you made!
