Macrame Necklace

This wonderful macrame necklace comes to us from PS I Made This DIY Designer Maven Erika Domesek. Erica was inspired to create this gorgeous, summery macrame necklace piece by Chanel’s SS10 Collection, which is filled with delicate, lacy macrame accents. What’s great about this necklace is that pretty much anyone can create it. It doesn’t take much time to put it together, and the results are stunning. As you know, macrame is showing up everywhere in fashion lately, and this wonderful DIY necklace is going to be your perfect accessory for summer. If you are a beginner and just starting out in learning how to macrame, I think this is an excellent project you can make in about an hour. And it has a very designer look to it when done right. I think this would look gorgeous in black as well. Give it a try!

Gorgeous Macrame Necklace anyone can do!

Supplies You’ll Need to Make this Macrame Necklace:

  • String or lightweight rope (choose something that isn’t too flimsy as you’ll want the loosely tied knots to hold their shape a bit).
  • Chain with some substance to it
  • Couple of wood beads
  • Scissors

1.      Start by holding your palm towards you and make a loop around your thumb.

2.      Then weave the rope through your fingers over and under in a loose pattern as shown, going back and forth until you’ve created two rows on each finger.

3.      Now remove the bottom string over the top of each finger, until you have just one row left.

4.      Continue weaving over and under, always creating 2 rows of rope and pulling the bottom rope over the top.

5.      After you are satisfied with your woven design, carefully remove from fingers, loop the strand through all finger holes.

6.      Add beads and chain.

TIP: This make take a few tries to get the weave you want, but it’s well worth the effort. Try wiggling your fingers a bit when tightening the weave, which helps the necklace take its loosely weaved shape.
