Inspiring and easy to follow 11 Jun. 2007
By K. Johansson - Published on
Format: Paperback
While googling around to find some inspiration for my new found interest micro-macramé I found Joan Babcock's site. And I was in awe! So naturally, when I found out she had written a book on the subject I had to have it.

The book consists of three parts: basic info on nine basic knots, tools and materials; projects and a part with tips on how to end a macramé piece, calculate the lenght of threads needed etc. The middle section includes all in all ten project ranging from earrings to necklaces in different micro-macramé and cavandoli techniques. Some with just a few beads, others with more. Very colourful and very modern, far for the 70's and black or beige hemp.

The pages in the book are in black and white. While I at first felt something was lost with the b&w photos of the finished projects, I found that all the projects were featured in full colour on the cover. So I can still get a good look at how they are supposted to turn out. I does mean I flip between the pages and the cover though. As for the illustrations, also in b&w, I find they are very well made with great detail and I find that they are at least just as good as step-by-step photos. In fact, they are better as you are not distracted by details and colours unlike in photos. I guess a person used to photo directions might feel a bit at loss in the beginning, but this type of illustrations are just positive as far as I see it.

The book starts from the basic and does a very good job describing the techniques for beginners. But I think a total newbie might want to try some of the simple projects you can find online or in Bead & Buttons booklet first. Joan Babcock's projects can perhaps feel a bit daunting otherwise.But I dare say this is still a very good book for everyone interested in this type of jewellery making. I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

Mini macrame jewelry 6 Feb. 2007
By Gerry Hall - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ms Babcock's book is a welcome change from the old "clunky" type macrame. I am a jewelry beader who has also done macrame in the past. Being able to blend this micro macrame with jewelry designs is so much fun! It has "jump started" my creative juices to do designs of my own using both beads and macrame. The directions in the book are very complete, resulting in your end product being just like what is pictured in the book. I recommend this book to beaders and macrame artists as well.

Too expensive for black and white book!! 6 Feb. 2007
By Ricardo Coelho - Published on
Format: Paperback
Tis book has poor images or almost no color images at all. The step by step solutions are made with black and white poor drawings wich leave so many doubts in the process because they are not very detayled. As the process goes on the above situations are represented in a very stylised way. Too expensive for the information included.

finally a great micro macrame book 23 Mar. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been a student of the white swan beading school of micromacrame for years. This book was sent from heaven. Great projects and clear instructions. This is a fabulous method of beading. It is refreshing to have some new projects to make. Keep them coming.

The Joys of Macrame 29 Sept. 2007
By T. Khor - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's such a wonderful book, I couldn't put it down as it was more than I expected and it demonstrate so clearly how easy it is to produce pretty pieces of jewelry from these knots. They are so versatile and when combined with Chinese knotting techniques, produced very unique pieces for me.
