This macrame earring is a result of playing with the knotted lines’ direction.
The shape of the left and right sides of the earring is some kind of a stepped pattern.
You can make two completely identical earrings or you can mirror the pattern to have a left and right piece.
When you are at about to finishing the earring you have to cautiously adjust the whole piece with your hands to add a nice and flat shape to it.
You can knot a pendant if you make it with larger beads and more cords.
I think changing the direction can help everyone to understand the nature of macrame and it is making your knotting skills improving. 🙂
I used 1mm braided waxed polyester cord.
- 9 x 60cm waxed polyester cord (1mm) per earring;
- 1 x 1cm bead per earring, I used glass beads;
- 2 x earring closures.
You will also need:
- a workboard (mine is a covered swimming board);
- and a lighter.
