Tutorial: Venus earring
It is also an absolute beginner tutorial, very easy, the steps are repeated and it is super for practicing. If you have problems with this pattern, then go back to the easy spiral bracelet, because the steps are more detailed in that tutorial. Notice the slight difference between the two bracelet.
If you try using different colored cords, then you can easily follow them while knotting. It is important when later you will plan your more complex macrame works. 🙂
Sometimes I make necklaces with this chain.
I hope you manage! 🙂
- 4 x 100cm waxed polyester cord (1mm) (I used turkish waxed braided polyester cord).
You will also need:
- a workboard (mine is a covered swimming board);
- and a lighter.

Happy knotting! 🙂
Hi there and thanks for this tutorial!
What length of cord would one need to make a necklace like this?
Well, it depends on what length the necklace should be.
If I made a choker then I would start with 2.5 times longer cords, so 4*2,5m.
But it also depends on what is the style of the necklace (the example necklace on the tutorial was made of three different parts: the main pendant is separate from the chain pattern, I added the cords and started the chain pattern after finishing the pendant).
And it also depends on how the finishing is made (sliding knot on a longer braided cord or just using a metal closure and cut off the unnecessary cords.)
The more you practice the better you will be in estimating the amount you need.
But to tell you the truth, even if I am asked to make an earring I didn’t make for a long time I go to the tutorials and look at the numbers. 😀
It is good to create notes and preserve the numbers for a later occasion.
Please do a necklace tutorial! I really love that black one in the photo! I’m in love with all of this stuff
I hope I will have time to create a necklace tutorial. I really would like to. 🙂
Thanks for your response. 🙂
