I love them, I have always liked the look of macrame in bead work and I would love to have a go, but do not know where to start. Is there any books or web sites out there that could help me.

Well, I'll vote for the green one, as I'm a "green girl".  They are just beautiful.  Did you use S-lon/C-lon?

Thanks for the compliments!  These watches are a special order for a customer who is buying one for each of her three daughters.  She wanted peridot, sapphire & pink.   It was really fun to make them the same yet different.  They're made from C-lon beading cord - it comes in soooo many great colors!

Wow, those are pretty!  I can see these becoming heirloom pieces!  Yeesh!  I gotta stop looking at this stuff!  Now I want to learn micro macrame!  I started with loom beading, now off-loom bead weaving, bead embroidery (my favorite) now kumihimo (I just learned this two weeks ago)  and now this!  Big Smile

These are so beautiful! The colors in the blue one are so stunning! But they are all beautiful!

I love your macrame work...It just looks so intricate...like beadwork made with the tiniest seed beads looks so intricate!

One of these days I really do want to try this technique...I have a lot of other stuff to finish before I start yet another project, but eventually I want to try!

What size C Lon do you use most often with your micro macrame?

I usually use the one called beading cord - it's about .5mm.

Oh wow, I've never been a fan of macramé - I hear the name and think of those old owl decorations from the 70's or 80's that my grandmother used to have, lol. But these are gorgeous; you've just converted me Big Smile I never realized that macramé could be so beautiful!
