Openwork Macrame Bracelet
Do you love all things macrame? Skip the wall hangings and planters to make some jewelry instead. This DIY macrame bracelet is perfect for beginner, intermediate, and advanced crafters.

What you may not know about these pretty jewellery must-haves, is that they’re super quick and simple to make, too!
