About this design:

I love Moss agate and I've been dusting off my old macramé skills. Frankly the irregular shaped beads intimidated me, but I thought if they were lined up on the outside of a macramé row, they just might work. Glad I stuck to simple macramé alternating half hitch knots - you really can't admire them when the bracelet is on!

Components:

Everything but the wooden button from LB: Irish waxed linen (love the stuff) in 7 ply denim center strands and 4 ply emerald knotted strands. Lovely irregular nuggets of Moss Agates (sorry, I got the last strand).

    So THAT’S what you’re supposed to do with these odd-shaped stones! I have some similar-looking sodalite sticks, which I’ve been quite unable to find much use for! Have to remember this, and the combo with linen — has to go into faves! :-)
