Macrame Ring

I love it when happy accidents occur, like this macrame ring.  It’s made out of faux leather, and is a dark gun metal color.

When I was making it, it quickly became clear that I was going to run out of cord, and that it wasn’t going to be the bracelet I wanted it to be. So, I started playing around, and realized I would have just enough length to make a ring. To finish it off, I tied a knot in the back, and secured with super glue.

Update: 01-25-2015 I still LOVE this ring. I wear it everyday, and it’s holding up nicely.

Adjustable Stone Macrame Pouch Necklace Tutorial

My latest craft obsession? Macrame! Specifically, adjustable stone macrame pouches, which are simply macrame pouches that you can open, and change out the contents.

I’ve been wanting one of these as a necklace for wearing crystals. Had I known they were so easy to make, I would have made them a lot sooner.

While I made many different versions during my learning phase (such as the image with the sparkly teal bead and white thread), there were only really 2 that actually were put to use.

One I made to hang crystals in the car. It was one of the first few pouches I attempted. It’s not perfect, but it works well for the car.

 Adjustable Stone Macrame Pouch Necklace

After a few more attempts I was able to make this — an adjustable macrame pouch necklace, with sliding adjustable knots, so that I can easily change the length of the necklace.
