Micro macrame

Micro macrame is basically little tiny macrame with beads.  Me and my wonderful mum went to another craft course at The Bead Shop Nottingham to find out what it was all about.


The piece is pinned to a macrame board whilst you're working on it, so I didn't realise what a mess it looked when I took it off!  We were supposed to use size 11/0 beads, but I just couldn't thread them onto the C-lon cord we were using, so swapped to size 8/0s.  If you're a beader, that gives you an idea of the scale.  If not...


This ruler is showing centimetres, so this piece is about 3" long, including the ring.  I do intend to finish this as I did enjoy it, but I just don't know where the time goes...

That looks a bit fiddly, your bead shop certainly offers some different classes for you to enjoy. Glad you had fun doing it. xcx
