Suzen Millodot illustrates the versatility of a few simple macramé techniques and creates twenty imaginative designs and great alternative ideas using braids, cords and beads. She includes patterns for two easy knots: the square knot and the lark’s head knot, showing how to tie them in different ways using just four cords, and combines them with beads to make stylish necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Repeat one knot and complement the cord with contrasting beads to make eyecatching bracelets. Interweave cords of different colours and create trendy necklaces, or vary the position of the knots for an original look. This up to date look at macrame techniques offers crafters and jewellery makers fresh, inspirational ideas and takes an exciting look at a traditional craft.

If you already know the macrame knots, you might find this book helpful for jewelry ideas. But there is very little in the way of pictures and instruction on how to tie the knots.
