105 minutes

Join international polymer clay artist, Iris Mishly and learn how to design and combine micro macrame and polymer to create exciting and unique one of a kind jewelry pieces. Macrame has come along way since the 60’s. Now the possibilities are endless with an array of beautifully colored fibers and inks to create spectacular projects.

First Iris will show how she creates textured polymer sheets decorated with alcohol inks to create a spectacular focal bead. And not just round. Think teardrop too or let your imagination go!

Then watch step-by-step how to create a bezel to set off your polymer bead embedding it in an impressive micro macrame bracelet.

WARNING The colors and texture possibilities will be addicting. Plus like knitting or coloring, knot tying can become meditative!

BONUS Iris will show how to convert a bracelet project into a pendant project plus additional BONUS video that will show you how to do numerous other exciting micro macrame knots and resin finishes.
