Inspiration comes to us through many avenues, and on a good day it shows up when you didn't even know you were looking. So it was a couple of months back when Tariq Muttalib, owner and designer of PoeticEra macrame jewelry, came in for a class.
Those of us who like working with cords and mixed media have been happy to see macrame returning to fashion. If you are also a fan of this art form you'll enjoy perusing poeticera.com, which features Tariq's jewelry, his blog and includes a learning center.
The About page describes his jewelry as incorporating "glass, gemstones, semi-precious and precious stones in custom macrame jewelry, and prides itself on the creative features and original designs of attractive color combinations, detailed weaving, and complex knot-work."
Click on any of the photos or links to go to his site, or just enjoy some images here. And, as always, be inspired by the creative possibilities with macrame!
