Handmade Earrings

I haven’t been doing a lot of crocheting lately. I just ran out of ideas on things to make. I sell what I make but no one seems to be buying so it was costing me more to make things than I was collecting. So I have given it a break until some things start to sell. 

However, I have been playing around with macrame. I remember my grandmother and aunt used to make macrame items back in the 70’s. They made key chains, plant hangers and pocketbooks. They would go around in the laundry mat and sell things. Grandmaw would at least make enough money to buy us ice cream because thats where she would take us after she sold a few of her crafts.

I guess it’s in my blood because I have been making these macrame earrings. I love the boho look and they are quick and fun to make. 

Have you ever macremed anything?
Do you own a piece of macrame? Like …..The owl. Hahaha. I think everyone had a plant hanger or owl in the 70’s.

Email me if your interested in a pair of these earrings or you can find them in my Etsy shop.


  1. I have at times wanted to learn working with thread and yarn. I like those ear rings, but no, Sherry nor I macramé, knit or crochet, but we sure admire those that can!!!

  2. I've been known to make a few macrame plant hangers back in the 70's!!

  3. My Grandma loved to macrame yes the plant hangers and the Santa door hangers we got so many we didn't know what to do with them. Now that you mention it I wonder where mine are probably in the attic. I want to find them now! I love your earrings they are very pretty. Hope things start selling again.

  4. Those earrings are so cute. I remember the dream macrames and how cool they looked. You have a talent with this, and it's nice that you take after your Grandmother and Aunt in making macrame items. They do look Bohemian, which I love. : )
