Macrame is the art of decorating with knots. Although macrame-like knots have been seen on carvings of ancient Mesopotamia, the art as it is known today began with Arabian crafters in the Middle Ages. It was brought to Spain by the Moors, and from there spread throughout Europe. Macrame was used to decorate shawls, towels, and other fabrics. It has become a technique in making jewelry in North America since the 1970s.
Rose will be featuring the art of making macrame bracelets in her classes at jewelry shows in California. See BEADSHAPER for details.
