Macrame Diamonds

Scarab in micro macrame bracelet by Sherri Stokey of Knot Just Macrame.

With our holiday celebrations in the rear view mirror now, I've had a bit of time to sit down and play with my beads.  I don't feel like I've finished experimenting with my newest design - I call it Woven Diamonds (you can find the online class here, if you are interested).

I had some little scarab beads and it turns out they nestle just as snug as a bug in a rug... (okay, I'm a little sorry for that one).  The scarab does fit rather well in the center of this bracelet, though.  I kept the background neutral and then used a great mix of beads with some greener turquoise, off white and bronze.

While I was digging through my stash for oval shaped beads, I ran across a sodalite one I couldn't pass up.  I paired it with navy blue cord and made a seed bead mix to match.

I'm pretty happy with the way both of these turned out.  They're listed in my Etsy shop, if you just can't resist.  I also have a couple kits listed if you don't want to have to find the materials yourself.  One is in the sodalite and blues and the other is turquoise like this:

Happy knotting!!
