Thread jewelry - macrame technique

Any modern fashionista knows that you can emphasize your style due to various ornaments and accessories. But in order to make the image was really elegant and unique jewelry should be not just beautiful, but also original. And, as you know, the most exclusive gizmos are made by hand. That is why many girls prefer to make jewelry with their own hands. Firstly, it allows you to save money, and, secondly, you can safely say that homemade accessories are certainly the only and unique ones.
One of the most ancient, but, despite this, until now, the actual technique of creating jewelry is macrame. Today we will learn the basics of this art and try to make a bracelet from threads (or, as they are also called, baubles).
For this we will need: threads of a mulina (I used only 2 colors - orange and yellow, but you can combine more shades), a pin, scissors and a sewing needle.

The size of one / each thread should be about 50 cm. After you cut the desired number of threads (I have 4), fold them in half like this.

Now back off from the bend about 5-6 cm and tie a knot. Then, for the convenience of further work, pin a loop with a pin, for example, to a sofa upholstery or a carpet.

If you use 2 colors, it is better to lay out the thread through one. When using more colors, you can come up with some other order of alternation of colors (for example, "rainbow", etc.).

Now we take the leftmost thread and tie it with the next thread twice.

That is, how to tie a knot on the first string, and then repeat it. Then we tie a knot from the next, not yet used thread, etc., to the same thread. until all the threads are tied around the first.

To make the knots even, it is necessary to keep the first string under tension all the time, and tie the knots as tightly as possible.
After we have made one row of nodules, we repeat the procedure again, using the same principle. We also start with the leftmost thread. Make sure that the colors alternate through one.

Then from each two strings you need to make chains of knots. For this baubles, I tied five knots on each pair of threads. To make the knots look more attractive, tie them alternately lifting up either the left or the right thread.

Now again we make 2 rows of knots, beginning with the leftmost thread - just like we did at the very beginning.

For convenience, you can pin different parts of the bauble to the upholstery with a pin or help fix the work with a needle.
In fact, the weaving of the whole bouquet will consist of two stages - knitting a number of knots and knitting chains of knots. Therefore, alternately repeat these steps until we get the required size.

After the necessary number of knots is connected, we need to complete the work as follows. In the end, all the threads are tied into a knot, as at the beginning of work.

After this knot, leave about 5 - 6 cm, and cut off the remnants of the thread. The upper eyelet, which at the beginning was pinned with a pin, is cut into two parts. In this way, strings are obtained, on which our dyeing will hold.
As you can see, making jewelry with your own hands is not so difficult. Try it and you will definitely succeed.Good luck!
