kerravonsen: Stone egg on moss: "Art is Life, Life is Art" (art)
[personal profile] kerravonsen posting in [community profile] magpie
The most recent [site community profile] dw_news post inspired me to go looking for beadcraft related communities, and I found this one. Hello!

You can also blame [personal profile] elisem whom I met at WorldCon and she inspired me to get back into beading and learn new stuff. Though I kind of got side-tracked; instead of dashing in to learn wire-work, I ended up dipping into micro-macrame. Probably because it's easier to buy string/yarn/thread than wire, and because I already know macrame. Still, making the pretties is always fun!

This is my first micro-macrame necklace: green necklace
I finished it yesterday.

That's a lovely necklace! Gorgeous colors. I'm curious - what cord/yarn did you use for the macrame?

Hee! I do that magpie thing, too. It's wonderful when you finally find a use for something pretty like that, isn't it?

Oh that's a lovely necklace. I've got too many cats to try micro-macrame, though I found a book that I really liked and I want to try it.

Any tips/suggestions so that when I do try it I can keep from knotting my fingers together?

Lovely! I particularly enjoy the seamless integration of the twistiness of the glass and knottedness of the macrame: many cord-and-bead pieces look like "thing A" joined with "thing B," while this is all of a piece.
