I started macrame in the early 60’s and made, sold, and gave away many plant hangers, belts, headbands, chockers, hanging tables, and lampshades. As my knot vocabulary increased, I started designing my own pieces. After a long hiatus, I picked it up again when I moved to Riondel 7 years ago. The lake kept presenting me with beautiful driftwood, beach glass, and pretty rocks. I love working with natural substances and here was all this free material waiting for me. I also enjoy repurposing items and incorporating them into my work – I just follow where the cords take me and usually don’t know the outcome until it’s done.
