A Beloved Instructor!
Yes, we know it's been too long!
Today, I'm thrilled to present a brand new class from micro-macrame artist, Sherri Stokey – and it was worth the wait!
"The inspiration for this class
came from water," says Sherri. "Picture a raindrop hitting the surface of a puddle. The way the ripples spread out from the drop in concentric circles getting larger... until they bump up against something...that's what I've tried to capture in this piece."
If you are brand new to micro macramé
, you are in for a treat! It's portable, requires very few materials, and Sherri has some really fun beginner classes to get you started on the right track. Best of all? Her previous classes are 30% off or MORE
through Tuesday. It's a great time to stock up and learn a new technique!
"Sherri is a blessing and mentor to those of us who want to learn great techniques, and then create pieces with our own special touches." –Diane M.
Ripples in Micro Macramé Bracelet with Sherri Stokey
Let Sherri show you how just one type of knot – and a few tricky moves – can make this gorgeous bracelet!
Like a drop of water hitting the surface of a puddle, the fluid circles originate at the central bead in one section, then circle back in the next. This bracelet design is the result of weeks of experimentation and trial and error, so it was a labor of love for Sherri.
Sherri has filled this class with lots of video and step-by-step photos, and shows you how to:
- Make curves by changing the direction of your knotting.
- Incorporate beads into your design.
Sherri also gives you tips for varying the design by using three different colors of cords (above left). This eye-catching bracelet is sure to be a show piece for years to come!

1. Woven Diamonds Micro Macramé Bracelet with Sherri Stokey
When Sherri did an informal poll to see which of these two bracelets she should feature as a class, the result was overwhelmingly... BOTH! So that is what she did. It's like two classes in one!
The inspiration for the intricate "woven" design came from Sabrina Salvioli
. Sherri fell in love with one of Sabrina's pieces and wanted to replicate its texture in a bracelet. In typical Sherri style, she uses seed beads to contrast with the knotting.
In this three-part class, which includes over 40-minutes of video in addition to her detailed photo step-outs, Sherri will show you how to:
- Tie the knots required to make these bracelets.
- Create a professional-looking closure using a split ring technique.
This design is extremely versatile as you can see in Sherri's gorgeous variations. She has used some gorgeous combinations and even created a "plaid" pattern using two different color cords for the woven sections.

3. Leafy Cuff in Micro Macramé with Sherri Stokey
Learn Sherri's methods for making this beautiful cuff bracelet with a delicate, lacy design, texture and beads!
This class uses the same basic knots Sherri teaches in several of her other classes – a few larks-head knots and a lot of double half-hitches – but this time you’ll experiment with turning your knotting on end. Instead of working down the length of the bracelet, you'll be working across its length.
As you can see in Sherri's color variations, you can incorporate more than one color cord and/or beads to make a completely different looking bracelet!
