My Macrame Necklace

Here is my newest macrame necklace! I enjoyed working on this one due to the Unique Meaning of the Knots!

BeadJeweled is a nickname for our Bead Projects. Here we will share photos and some How-To's in the Art of Creating Jewelry and accessories with Macrame or Crochet!



My BeadJeweled Project for the month of October!

PROSPERITY NECKLACE

Display your favorite Pendant with this Elegant necklace pattern. It combines a centrally placed prosperity knot balanced by coin knots on either side, separated by Tunisian Antique Metalized(look like metal) Beads.

The Prosperity Macrame knot has the appearance of a sequence of double coin knots. In China the double coin knot represents long life and prosperity as its shape represents two overlapping coins.

You can find the pattern of this necklace in the book: 75 Chinese, Celtic, & Ornamental Knots by Laura Williams & Elise Mann.

Changing Careers 2

It has been almost a year now since I retired from full-time Line-Cooking. I have had the time to get out those books with projects I have always wanted to make.
I have been learning the Art of Macrame again!
I dabled with plant hangers and Owls and such years ago when my Mom encouraged me to try. Now I am finding that Macrame is coming back as an Art with the Jewelry Making Artists! Belts/Braclets/Earrings/Keychains and etc. all done in MINITATURE MACRAME KNOTS!
Well I like to make the BIG stuff and maybe later I will get brave to try more of the Macrame Jewelry!
Here is my latest project and more photos to come.
