This is what I have been working on for the last several days. Jewelry made with 3 1/2mm braided macrame cord. The cord I use for purses and belts. It makes up larger so it doesn’t take many knots to create something.

8 or 9 Square Knots and you have a pair of earrings. They are very lightweight. I wore a pair for an hour and totally forgot I had them on.

This next pair I created from 3 strips of cord and added some wooden circle beads.

Here’s a bangle bracelet made with just square knots and larger wood circle beads.

Necklace was created with a length of square knots and chain links on both sides with a silver clasp at the top. Large wood circle beads hang from the cord. They move freely across the knots. Ribbon crimps and jump rings connect the cord to the chain links. It measures 22″.

Supplies used for necklace, bracelet and earrings:

  • 3 1/2mm braided macrame cord
  • ribbon crimps
  • jump rings
  • chain links
  • silver clasp
  • wood beads
  • earrings hooks
