Micro Macrame Lessons and Classes – Where to Begin ?!
Each of these bracelets is made using the knotting technique called micro macrame (or sometimes beaded macrame). You wanna learn to do it yourself? You may have heard that I have already provided tutorials and e-classes for micro macrame (yes, okay, finally!). But now you’re probably wondering which class is right for you? Let me see if I can shed some light on this.
If you’re new to micro macromedia, the first thing you might want to do is check out this free eClass at CraftArtEdu.com – Micro Macrame 101. This includes a lot of basic information about what tools and materials you need, some alternatives. for fixing surfaces and cables overview. Convenient, basic information.
If you’re ready to knot, I recommend either the Knitting tutorial in Etsy or the Micro Macrame Wrap Bracelet eClass at CraftArtEdu.com. Both are for beginners. The knit bracelet uses only a few knots, and Wrap helps you learn five different knots. I added a lot of photos to each one. I’m really proud of the wrap pattern because I think it’s a really fun way to learn your nodes and there’s the potential for personalization.
Hydreangeas Bracelets and Earrings eClass is just one step of difficulty. It uses more cables and more beads, but I’ve added all the photos as well as some video clips to help you. If you don’t need that much training, Hydrangeas .pdf can be perfect for you. Leaves .pdf falls somewhere in the same area. It uses only a few nodes, but you need to know how to follow the tutorial.
The latest model I have is the ZigZag bracelet. It was the first tutorial I ever did, but you’ll notice I put it on my list last. The instructions on this are not as clear as I want for beginners. I’ve definitely developed with the successive lessons. Nevertheless, I didn’t remove it from the sale, because if you know a great design and micro macrame, you should be able to follow it without too much trouble. Nowadays I’m going to wander around to rewrite and expand, because it’s fun and I’ve made a few variations like this;
I hope this will clear the confusion about where to start. Give a chance! You’il be surprised what you can do, I guess. Oh, and just to make it a little easier for you, we’ve put together lanyards, beads and findings for the many tutorials available in my Etsy store. Just call me the Enabler.

I started with Micro Macrame Wrap Bracelet and it was the best for me. Braids are also a good place to start. The flat knot and half flat knot I have already familiar. Sherri’s so meticulous, you feel like you’re in class with her.
I just bought the micro macra wrap bracelet kit, but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet. I started watching and there were some problems on my internet, so you should try again. Looks like a lot of fun. I did a Macramé in the ’70s and started trying again. I can’t wait to try it.
Supplies are available in many places. I saw them on Beadaholique.com the other day and they also carry a super cord. You don’t have to buy a special board – I have a free class to show you some options: http://craftartedu.com/fiber/micro-macrame/sherri-stokey-micro-macrame-101
You are a very amazing Micro Macrame Jeweler and Teacher !! Your classes and trainers are perfect with excellent diagrams, written instructions and speech instructions. I’ve been making jewelry beads for a few years. Now I have discovered Micro Macrame Jewelry. I’m still learning, so I was wondering if you had any advice on using Micro Macrame to make barefoot sandal jewelery. Thank you for putting your information on the internet for others like myself to discover. Sincerely, Donna Beam from San Marcos, TX
First let me tell you that your work is good. However, I was wondering if there was a tutorial on how to make a small macrame cuff, such as pens and handles for pens. I wish I could make one for my dreadlocks, but I couldn’t find any training.
The only thing I can have is this http://craftartedu.com/sherri-stokey-spiral-micro-macrame-bracelet. If you want a shorter (shorter than a bracelet) but a “fatter” piece, you want to start with shorter cords, but more. I’d probably watch tut, but I cut the cord lengths in half to get started. You may have to play a bit of size – it’s a predictive game to get the exact diameter you want.
I took the Leaves bracelet class and I must say it was beautiful. I’m “novice” with micro macrame and it has never been really good to use written instructions, but the instructions and pictures are great. I would definitely recommend Sherri Stokey’s instructions to anyone. Thanks to Sherri for your wonderful work.

Bringing macromeles of the 20th century here and now

I have to admit that until recently, the list of things I want to hang on my macrame walls will be at the end – when I grew up, it brought back memories of the moldy brown pieces I found in dozens of thrift stores. A particular macrame find – an owl made of twine – comes to mind. However, if you take the time to them, as proof that the flavors and trends have become a complete cycle (I’m betting the owl gets a nice penny in some old vintage boutiques right now) I’ve found myself with pleasure recently (not like that) Art.

Finally my example – my friend Jess recently bought the most beautiful wall hanging in Etsy (as you can see below) and it is full of neons to add a modern cool touch. After seeing this, I was desperate to know more about how these pieces were created – and I was very happy when Himo Art May agreed to stop running out. May did a great job of bringing the macro of the 20th century here and now (the last macromeles became perfect for me), and I was delighted that she decided to look at it – it turned out to be quite complicated – the process. It’s time to Improve your knotting skills, kids!

Things that you need:

  • Rope
  • Wooden Dowel
  • Wooden Breads
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Masking Tape
  • Paint

 

1

It can attach dowels to the wall – it uses a removable hook, because it’s a great way to not make holes in the wall.

2

It can cut the rope into 14 x 4 yard pieces and 2 x 5 yard pieces. It then begins tying the rope to the head nodes of the larvae and compiling the dowel with 5 yard pieces (one at each end) into a book.

3

The rest can continue with ropes.

4

Then it makes double half axle knot.

5

And it goes on and on.

6

By the end, May begins tying them diagonally across the ropes.

7

You can add wooden beads here and here before connecting the nodes.

8

Then each starts to connect the switch nodes using 4 ropes.

9

Can connect 8 of them.

10

It then adds the node (as before) to the double half node.

11

And he brings them crosswise.

12

You can add more beads and bring the knots to the end.

13

It can then cut the ends of the rope.

14

Covers a portion of the dowel ends to paint and add a hint of neon (a woman from my own heart!)

15

Finally, he adds a watermelon pop to the end of the rope.

Great!

And there, hung a magnificent macrame wall. I can appreciate the work that goes into these pieces – not a craft for withered or ham!
