Tutorial: Venus earring
It is a modern piece of work. 🙂
I started with one of the 30cm cords through the earring closure, then I added 5-5pcs 50cm long cords in half to both sides. As you will see on the pictures: lastly I added two cords that are 30cm long again.
I used Amann Serabraid T90 0.9mm thread for this project, I like the silver color and the touch of this cord, it was very easy to make knots with it. 🙂
I hope you like it, it was fun for me to make it. 🙂
If you have any questions about the cords I use, or the board I work on, please visit FAQ first.
- 10 x 50cm waxed polyester cord (Amann Serabraid T90 thread 0,9mm);
- 3 x 30cm waxed polyester cord;
- 2 pcs earring closures.
You will also need:
- a workboard (mine is a covered swimming board);
- and a lighter.

Happy knotting! 🙂
Is the cord you use 1mm or 0.5mm? What brand of cord do you use?
I used Amann Serabraid T90 thread 0,9mm.
thanks a lot for your tutorial, it was the reason why I decided to take up the hobby. I am new to macramé (actually I was quite good at it at school but it is almost 30 years ago) and I really wanted to try out this project. I started yesterday but I wasn’t happy with the result. I gave up and looked at the project today morning with a fresh eye and saw what was the mistake I had made. To help the other people, I would like to say (maybe obvious to the others, but somehow I didn’t see it): MAKE SURE THAT YOU MAKE 2 KNOTS ON EACH CORD (which is the total of 20 nots in each line).
Thank you and keep up the good work! 🙂
Best wishes! 🙂
