DIY Macrame knot earrings

Those earrings are really simple, great for casual outfit. Simple to make and yet the range of possible designs are extremely wide.

Step 1:
Make a loop,
as simple as it is.

Step 2:
Make the other loop,
(both sides shown)

Step 3:
Fold both loops together,
just like butterfly folds it's wings.

And here it is, basic for Macrame Knot Earrings. And now it's time to have some fun. Get a pair of ear hooks, and some gems to attache. Here some examples for possible designs:

           You can make loops at edges and
            hang some beads.      


            You can put a bead on one of wires and
             hummer the edge, so it will be flatten.

             You can combine first two options,
             so one wire will be flatten and the other
             will have hanged gemstone on it


Please feel free to try, enjoy the process of creation. I know, I will :)))

Treasuries at Etsy, why should I?!

There is three kinds of audiences:
1. Your "neighbors" in the Treasure - they may notice your item and favorite it and that way they'r followers will be able to do the same.
1.2 The same neighbors may notice an item and buy your item (I have a large number of sales goes to the sellers on Etsy, and among them even jewelry sellers)

2. Treasure that have been lucky enough to gets on the Front page. And then during the magic hour an item will be visible to everyone who comes to Etsy.

3. Treasure promoted to the first page. Potential buyers come to the front page and was impressed by the beauty of it clicks on a link leading to all other Treasuries, and then walking up to the first Treasuries he can see your item and buy it.

Good luck!
