Mother-daughters’ bracelets

21 Dec

Some time ago a friend of mine asked me to make some matching bracelets for her and her two young daughters, for Christmas. She wanted string-macramè bracelets with green beads for one daughter and blue beads for the other. The third bracelet, for herself, was to be a mix of the other two….

Anyway, apparently she wasn’t able to wait until Christmas to give the girls their bracelets, so I decided to post them now, since I won’t spoil anything…. 😉

Just another summer bracelet

18 Aug

I have been very lazy this Summer but at least I sometimes found the inspiration – and the strenght –  to make something. This is how I came up with this bracelet.

It is made with gold painted beads and light blue glass beads and black cotton string. It was quite easy and I wish I had more beads with larger holes to make other bracelets… or a thinner string….

The grey infinity bracelet

11 Nov

Last week, my colleague Enza found out about my blog and saw the “infinity bracelet” I made for a friend. Since her daughter is very fond of this symbol, she asked me to make one for her too. She preferred it to be grey or brown and I thought that perhaps gray was more elegant. So I made this one, which differs from the other because of the thinner string. In this case I decided to use the macramè tecnique instead.

On the background is another project… cotton crocheted coasters… wait for more. 😉

The Vicious Circle Bracelet

8 Nov

I did these 3 macramè bracelets for me and my two longtime school friends Cristina and Sonia.

Back then, in the old days, we used to call ourselves the «Vicious Circle», despite – I can assure you – there was nothing vicious at all in our little circle of friends. We were just a friendly society, trying  to survive adolescence and school!

So, I decided to celebrate our more than two decades friendship with something unique, just for the three of us, and I came up with these bracelets. They choose their colour (green for Cristina and fuchsia for Sonia) and I did the rest.

Macramè bracelets

Of stars and a heart

25 Sep

What can I do? I really like this macramè processing techinque! So here is my brand new green macramè bracelet with two rings and some charms in the shape of two glass stars of different colours and a little black heart.

Perhaps it has a hidden meaning, something that never came to my mind while making it… 2 different stars = 2 different souls / and 1 shared heart…. plus, in Italy we say that green is the colour of hope…. I wonder what I was thinking about when making it?!? 🙂 Yep, precisely…

Macramè attempt

3 Sep

I’ve been very active lately, making something new at least once a day. So here is my very first attempt at macramè bracelet. I made it following this very useful tutorial. It has been easier than I thought. I only found a bit difficult to finish the knots because the needle didn’t slip through the tight knots very easily.

Despite it doesn’t look as stylish as the ones in the tutorial I’m quite satisfied with the result.
