Project by Brittany Ketcham

“Nostalgia” can be about remembering childhood experiences and longing for the people and things we grew up with. When reading about the meaning of the colors cream and tan, each offers a look back to elegance, calmness, and grounding. They both reflect things most of us long for: security and safety. We think the combination of the two colors finds the right balance of remembering and dreaming.

With just 4 tubes of seed beads and 5 colors of Chinese Knotting Cord, you can make 15 bracelets! Add a few organza bags and think about the smiles on your friends’ faces when you gift them some Bliss! How perfect.

See the Project Map below for a Bird’s Eye View of what beads are paired with what cord. Bollywood is a video project. Be sure to click on the VIDEO tab above to watch. We do not have a companion handout for Bollywood, however these techniques are helpful to review, if you’re new to Bollywood:
Please note: We no longer sell Thread Zaps, which Brittany demonstrates in the video. You can secure your knots with GS Hypo-tube Cement and cut the excess cord with Thread Snips or Cutters.

Project Map

Begin by cutting your base CKC 2 yards. Cut your macramé CKC 2 yards. When you're ready, cut 1/2 yard of CKC to make your fish tail adjustable knot. This design uses two sizes of Miyuki seed beads (6/0 and 8/0). In the video, Brittany uses 8/0 metal beads for the entire project, including the tails. We used 6/0 Miyuki beads for the tails  because the hole size fits better.
