Macrame is back! Adorn yourself with a gorgeous golden collar necklace, beaded bracelets and boho-inspired earrings. Wrap your lucky stone in bright knots and make it into a pendant on a leather cord, turn your favourite fabric into a quirky macrame belt, or why not whip up sparkling friendship bracelets for all your friends, each one in a different colour? Lucy Hopping has created a macrame project for every mood and outfit - there are chic and simple rings, a vivid feather necklace for festivals and delicate pearl and seed-bead bracelets to brighten up a work outfit or for a dinner date - each one will add a unique, hand-made touch to your wardrobe. All the projects are made with easy-to-learn macrame techniques and many of them use basic materials, such as embroidery thread, yarn, ribbon and beads. Start with the simplest projects, and as your skill level improves, move on to make complex designs, guided every step of the way by clear step-by-step instructions, illustrations and useful hints and tips.
