Macrame has re-emerged in the jewellery scene with a beautiful new twist. Micro-Macrame (or mini-macrame) is made using finer cords and when combined with crystal beads, creates gorgeous jewellery that resembles stained glass. Micro-macrame is simply a return to the type of ktting work done a century ago called macrame lace. In this accessible book, Annika de Groot teaches you how to use this older form to create delicate contemporary pieces. Once you learn the five simple kts, Annika shows you how to combine the kts with crystal beads to create a wide range of lovely pieces from necklaces, to bracelets to watch bands. The 30 stunning projects are accompanied by clear step-by-step instructions paired with detailed, instructive photographs and illustrations that guide you through each step of the process, making this the perfect book for beginners. Pick up Micro-Macrame and all the inspiration and skill you need to create stunning jewellery will be right at your fingertips.
ANNIKA deGROOT's passion for micro-macrame began over ten years ago when she was inspired to recreate a beautiful bracelet that she found in a gift shop. In addition to exploring and developing different macrame techniques in her work, she teaches workshops on micro-macrame. Her macrame jewelry designs have been featured in Bead & Button magazine.
