Macrame - When A Knot's Not Just A Knot

Oh my, when I saw the macrame icons constructed by Russian artist Vladimir Denshchikov I drooled. Go do a google search for more of his work. 

Well darlings 'macrame' has certainly come a long way from the pot plant holders and owl hangings of the 70s hasn't it! I did a search on and was amazed to have thousands of items come up. Lots of jewellery of course but many other items I didn't expect. Aren't they lovely? They've inspired me to, well, go get knotted!
