Getting the Right Supplies for Your Macrame Earrings

The heart of your earrings? The cords and findings, of course! The market’s flooded with vibrant cords and exquisite findings to bring your dream earrings to life.

Speaking of earring findings, I often find myself lost in the myriad options on Etsy. From geometric shapes like hexagons and triangles to whimsical designs like clouds and rainbows, the choices are endless! Whether you fancy natural wood or shimmering metals, there’s something for everyone.

And if you’re on the lookout for affordable golden hoops, a quick trip to your local drugstore or H&M might surprise you!

Tools to Amplify Your Macrame Game

Did you know fringe-trimming tools can be a game-changer? Especially for those delicate earrings or coasters. I swear by the fringe cutting guide from Ket Mercantile. It’s my go-to tool!

Picking the Perfect Macrame Cords

When it comes to earrings, Single Twist and Braided Macrame cords (1.5mm to 3mm thick) steal the show. I’m smitten by the Bobbiny brand. Their cords are not just vibrant but are an absolute delight to work with! ✨

Smart Tip!

Want to save some bucks? Repurpose your thicker cords. Just split them to achieve the desired thickness. Here’s a trick: gently reverse twist the cord, split using your nail, and twist back. Voila, you’re earring-ready!

Fringing Like a Pro

Give your macrame earrings that flawless finish with a pristine fringe. Using Bobbiny cords? Cutting, gentle combing, and trimming will get you there. And for that impeccable straight line, the Fringe Cutting Guide by Ket Mercantile is pure gold!

Your Ideal Macrame Workspace

Given the compact nature of earrings, you don’t need a sprawling workspace. A macrame workboard to pin your creations is all you need. A bit of tape can also work wonders to hold things in place while you craft away.

Unleash Your Creativity with Macrame Earring Patterns

The internet is teeming with talented macrame artists sharing their patterns. Youtube is a treasure trove! Remember, if the video speed isn’t to your liking, tweak the settings for a comfortable pace. ‍
