Bead and Macramae Shamballah Style Bracelets

Rocking chair painting put aside a little bit I've been making bracelets.  First I made a couple of bead and silver bracelets.
I set the focal point to the side on each bracelet. 
When you are "talking" with your hands or or generally with your arm movement the bracelet angle doesn't move much.  The focal point is visible towards whoever you are talking to.  Do you know what I mean?  Instead of slipping down.  I like them worn together.
Then I started making  the Shaballah style bracelet.   Thats what the stars are wearing  I'm told.  I macramaed using waxed linen cord and pretty beads.
I have learned how to make slip knot which you slide aside when removing the bracelet.
Two beads dangle at the ends.

The 3 bracelets look great together.  The colours go nicely and there are many choices to wear them with.


Pretty I think....
This is the underside and you can see the 2 beads at the ends of the macramae bracelet.  Thats also where the silver beads on the other two bracelets are.
 It has been years since I last macramed when I made plant hangers. 
Did you macramae...do you now? 
Have a great evening.... Judi xoxo

Yup I used to do it till my fingers bled, lol..
They are the big rage aren't they Judi? I was at the Woman's show in Mtl. and they were all over the place. Very popular, and you know how to make them.
Good for you.
They are gorgeous. And they look great together.
Great job.
P.S. I wouldn't be painting outside either, it's too freaking cold.

These are VERY pretty, Judi!!! I love them separate or together! I have never really done macrame...it is lovely and I love that you made the slip area where you can slide it open or closed! Very cool!!!

Judi, Your bracelets are beautiful. So much work as well. I used to do macrame but in a big way like plant hangers. This is intricate and very creative.
Happy weekend,
Hugs, Jeanne
