It's here! It's here! (Well, it's here: http://craftartedu.com/sherri-stokey-woven-diamonds-micro-macrame-bracelet.) My newest micro macrame class is out for all you DIY-ers. I call it Woven Diamonds and it includes directions for making both options of this macrame bracelet, the one that includes a focal stone:
And the option that features a repeating pattern with no focal section:
As always, I've included lots and lots of still photos for you as well as in depth step-by-step instructions. I have been including video in my classes for quite a while, but I really stepped up the video component this time - with 45 minutes of video included within the class!
I've rated this as an intermediate project. It only uses two different macrame knots, so it's not really hard in that respect, but there's a little bit of fancy footwork involved in getting the cords into the right position for the woven diamond sections (aren't they pretty, though - all that texture!). I don't think I'd recommend this be someone's first adventure in micro macrame, but that said, if you're a determined beginner and you're able to follow instructions well, everything you need to be successful is included in this class.
I made up a few kits to go along with the class that include the components you will need to make either version of the bracelet (the focal bead is in there, but you can choose to use it or not). I will have them available in my Etsy shop soon. (A word of warning - I did mix my own seed beads for this one and I never write down my recipes, so once these are gone there's no way I can recreate them. If you want one, snag it while you can.)
The folks at CraftArtEdu.com, being the nice folks they are (aren't I always telling you that?) are having a special introductory price on this class for a short while. As if that's not enough, all of my other classes are available at special rates as well! No codes needed. You can find all of them here: http://craftartedu.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?limit=20&q=sherri+stokey.
I always love student feedback, so if you take one of my classes, please do let me know how it went for you! Happy knotting!
