The weather here has been both snowy and ridiculously cold the past week, so I've spent a lot of time indoors messing about with my macrame. I tried a slight variation on the Gothic Tracery Micro Macrame Bracelet design. Here's the original as a reminder:
And here's the same bracelet with a slight variation:
Isn't that fun? I love the look of the second one on the wrist. The variation adds a lot of interest.
