Macrame (or macramé), is a form of textile-making where fibers or cords are knotted rather than woven or knitted together. It was super popular in 70’s.. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord, silver and gemstones. The nylon thread is brilliant and durable. The pieces can be washed with soap and water and if the silver needs polishing, a toothbrush with good toothpaste will shine them right up.
