TIPS AND HINTS (for this bracelet design)

  • Instead of using 4 colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, we only used 3
  • We made the lengths of our macrame square knots different lengths instead of making them all one length.  
  • We used two different bead patterns and alternated between the two.  The two bead pattern we used:  
    • Pattern 1:  Fire Polish, 8/0, 6MM Gemstone, 8/0, Fire Polish
    • Pattern 2:  Fire Polish, 8/0, 4mm Gemstone, 4mm Gemstone, 8/0, Fire Polish
