Tutorial Thursday!

HA Fooled ya!

Thought I would throw a Tute link up today. I found a cute one this morning at The Silly Pearl and I just had to share.  Jennifer from Always in Wonder is guest blogging today at Steph's blog. She has done the cutest ribbon rose Glam necklace, and shows step by step how to create it. Enjoy!


Tuesday Tutorial: Macrame Knots

I found this great site this morning that shows stepped out photos on doing some basic Macrame knotting. Head on over to Stone Brash Creative and learn this classic technique, it's a great way to use different materials such as linen, cotton and leather cordings.

Materials Monday: Royalwood Ltd. Waxed Linen cording

Over the weekend my new colors arrived from Royalwood Ltd.  This was my first time ordering from them. I am quite happy with my purchase. I like buying waxed linen cording in spools, because it lasts so much longer than just buying short lengths of it. I think it's worth the extra cash to stock up on something like this. I picked Victorian Rose, Maroon, Purple, Denim and Dark Rust.

They also sent me this cool color chart that shows each of the colors they carry.  And on the bottom of the chart, they show the 4 different sizes. What I ordered is the 4-ply, that's pretty common, but they also have 2 ply (which would be SO PERFECT for small holed beads like pearls or gem stones) 7 ply, and also 12 ply which would be cool for big chunky pieces with knotted wood beads.

I definitely want to try the 2-ply next time I order. Problem is, picking a color! Each of the cords comes in like every possible color.
