My Purple Phase

I was on a purple kick last week.  C-lon has a couple shades of purple cord that make my mouth water just to look at them.   Combining one of them with a great focal and a few supporting beads, you can't go wrong.  

See?  Add a great Czech glass button and *wow*!!

This button isn't even glass.  I think it's just plastic, but I absolutely love the color and the design so I guess I don't care.  If I could fine more of these, I'd buy a couple dozen!  I like to pair it with copper or red bronze beads and the purple really makes them pop.

For this one I used a pewter button and matte black iris beads.  Yes, I know they're not really black, but apparently they start out black and the coating gives them the lovely blue, purple and green colors?  I don't have to understand the process to love the product, thank goodness.

Those beads look great paired with black cord, too.  

Some of these micro macrame bracelets have already sold, but those that are left (and all new pieces I make) can be found in my Etsy shop:  KnotJustMacrame.etsy.com  If you're looking for a special piece of handmade jewelry (for yourself or as a gift for someone else) that isn't quite like everything else, I hope you'll take a minute and look around the shop.  Many thanks in advance!

If you'd rather make your own micro macrame jewelry, don't forget that registration is open for the Denver micro macrame classes next month.  You can find all the details on that in this post.

Happy knotting!


  1. Love your choice of colors and the beautiful bracelets they become

  2. Hi there! In that last picture it looks like the macrame rows are curved around the button, are they? Could you show or demonstrate what you did for the part under the button? Or do you have a tutorial for it? Thanks for sharing, you're work is amazing! :)

    1. Yes, the row is slightly curved. As far as the button, I just run the cord through the button shank and knot it a couple times to hold it. There is a photo in this post: http://www.knotjustmacrame.com/2012/09/micro-macrame-in-reverse.html


I'd love to hear from you!
