Anne Cecilie is the talented beader behind Jewelry and Polymer Clay Tutorial Heaven whose tutorials continue to be featured here. Want more super how-tos from Anne? Here goes.

First, a matching set of earrings and bracelet.The earrings tutorial demonstrates a wonderful combination of wire work and knotting with beads.

The designs are lacy to look at, particularly the bracelet. Check out Anne Cecilie's bracelet tutorial and see how she finishes the other end of the clasp ever so neatly!


She is astonishingly talented. Check out her second amazing Do Magic with Half Hitches and Beads macrame bracelet and you'll agree.  The tutorial is divided into Part 1 and Part 2.  She uses clever wire work for the clasp.

  1. I remember macrame in the 70s when it was so popular. It was the first crafty thing I tried and really disliked. This jewelry is so pretty and I'd be happy to wear it but I would run screaming and tearing my hair out if anyone told me I had to macrame something now! Funny...

  2. Beautiful work! Bead macrame is definitely on the list of things I want to try. :)

    I first realized just how beautiful macrame could be when I saw the work of Joan Babcock.

    Not only is she super talented, but she's one of the sweetest people I've ever met!

  3. Great post. I too remember macrame from my past (lots of plant holders!). The "new" macrame is beautiful. I love the pink and black bracelet and earrings.

  4. I also remember the 1970's macrame craze but I prefer the modern version especially micro macrame. It is especially suitable for jewelry.

    I think I may have mentioned one of Joan Babcock's books somewhere in my blog! She is outstanding for sure.
