wooden beads and a little rit dye

 while wondering the CHA floor in January
i came across the Rit Studio booth
they where dying wooden bead
wow! why didn't i think of that?!
i picked 2 colors and a variety of sizes
and last week i finally got a chance to
create some fun necklaces
my friend carmi gave me some wax cotton cord by dazzle-it
which worked great for stringing the beads and as always lead me to thinking
what other ways can i use this cord?
so out came the clip board and using a basic square knot i created my first strand
it has been a long time since i worked on a macramé project and really enjoyed it
the second strand i repeated the the half square knot to get the spiral effect
and finally , after some inspiration from pinterest i found this double knot
 i can't wait to work on some more projects


  1. Cool idea to dye the wooden beads, great necklaces.

  2. Hi Nancy, I really love these necklaces! I'd like to feature one of them on my website "Beadworthy" which showcases talent from jewelry artists. If you're interested, just drop me an email: admin(@)beadworthy(dot)com to let me have your permission to share your work. Thanks!

  3. I love the second necklace, Nancy. The organic looking macrame you created is just perfect with the wooden beads.
