My newest creation in crafting are my Knotted Passion Bracelets. This are created for you and show what you are passionate about. Each one is created to be as individual as the person wearing it. You can choose your favorite colors and also choose from a dozen words that I have in stock.
There are three stands of square knots in three different colors that are attached to a silver metal washer with the word engraved on both sides. A sliding knot closure was added to the bracelet, making it adjustable to fit a 6 to 8 inch size wrist.
“Macrame is an ancient craft, which originated in the 13th century in the Arabic countries, as weavers started knotting the excess threads on loomed fabric. Naturally, people started calling the knotted edges macrame, which translates as “fringe.”
As an art form, the knotted patterns became very popular among sailors, who started tying knots of rope to decorate parts of their ships. That contributed to the spread of macrame products around the world.
In the 1960s, hippies gave a new life to macrame products, using the knotting techniques to create clothes, accessories and household items.
Over the years, different cultures have adopted the usage of knots for decorative purposes. Chinese knotting, for example, is a distinctive art form and is one of the most popular characteristics of the Chinese Culture. Scoubidou is also a knotting craft that originated in France. At first it was a children’s activity, but its implication ideas are only limited by one’s imagination.
Macrame does not use special tools such as hooks or needles. It only uses several knots combined into different patterns to create a wide variety of decorative and practical items. Because of the unlimited number of patterns and product ideas, macrame can present a challenge to craftsmen on all levels.”
