Macrame knots are easy to create and make for interesting additions to jewelry. Here, we have used macrame knots in a sliding closure for a bracelet. This makes the bracelet easy to adjust and gives it a textured, playful look. You can make this closure as long or as short as you like and it takes no time at all to accomplish! Our tutorial will show you all the steps needed to get started with this simple technique.
