Macrame has come a long way since it first became popular in the 1970s and 1980s. The trend today is micro macrame, using the same knotting techniques. The cord used is much thinner and better suited to delicate jewellery. Thinner cord means beads can be strung onto it, so you can embellish your macrame work.

Cord diameters now used for macrame range from 0.4mm to no more than 2mm, so consider that when choosing your beads. Popular cords are C-Lon and Superlon, which come in a myriad of colours and sizes. You can even make an attractive piece with white household string and the right beads. Beading macrame has never been so alive with possibilities!
