first attempt at macrame

as per my list i'm learning new stuff! today i went for a macrame bracelet in leather thong with wooden beads:

it was really easy, i found a tutorial that had pretty good pictures and just followed them: macrame tutorial. the beads were a christmas present from my dad (dad; "what do you want for christmas?" me; "beads!" dad; "um, ok...") next time i think i'll use silk cord rather than leather as the leather is pretty hard to tie off and tuck in, and the inner cord was so thick i had to glue rather than tie the beads on the ends, but otherwise i'm quite happy with how it all went.
