Customer Review

This book provides the know-how to make 20 small, simple projects which include a belt and camera strap as well as jewellery. The various knots are given in one section at the front with photos and material lists in the project section in the second half of the book. Its full of excellent photos.


Customer Review

This book shows that macramé is not just for plant pot holders, it is versatile enough to make unique items of jewellery and accessories.

The book explains exactly what is needed for each project along with some health and safety advice. The explanation for each of the knots is clear and photographs accompany each stage of making the knot.

This book is excellent for beginners to macramé and also for those who have some knowledge. As someone who used to do macramé a lot, this book provides a nice refresher and I have also learnt some new knots.


Booklist, January Issue

All hail the 1960s and 1970s for crafty ideas that strike a chord again today. Macramé goes in and out of trendiness quickly, yet theres a mystique in the art of knotting that appeals over the long term. Former interior designer Strambio deftly uses her creative talent to offer 20 projects: mainly necklaces, along with bracelets, earrings, and a few headbands, key rings, and belts. Expect instructions on the basics are provided, from tools and materials to descriptions of a dozen or so different knots (two favourites: Endless Falls and Eternity). The projects are easy to conquer, with time estimates at roughly an hour, though level of difficulty is not indicated. Tips help get the tangles out: look for wooden beads with a hole large enough to accommodate the string; keep scraps 15 inches and longer. Interesting factoid: if household allergies suddenly emerge, look out for cotton dust emanating from the string.


Publishers Weekly

Macramé artist Strambio (Macramé for the Modern Home) shows how to create knotted jewellery in this chic guide. To help beginners get started, she provides instructions for creating basic knots and knotting patterns and offers guidance on choosing types of string, noting that braided string doesnt unravel while suede strings softness makes it ideal for bracelets and necklaces. The 20 projects include such boho-style accessories as a diamond-patterned headband, earrings with unravelled string made to look like feathers, and a necklace made of black tassels tied to a wooden ring.

Strambio also shows how to make a white and teal belt, a white camera strap, and a white and terracottacoloured keyring with knots that resemble daisies. Sharing tips of the craft, the author recommends wrapping the end of a string with masking tape to avoid fraying when adding beads (as in her gold-bead bracelet) and using a pet brush to straighten unravelled fringes. Macramé novices will appreciate the simple yet elegant designs, and though the projects are light on visual instruction, the authors directions are easy to follow. Those eager to try macramé would do well to start here.
