I wanted to try something a bit different, so raiding my jewellery stash, I found these cubed beads and some pretty ovals. I alternated the shades of the cubes to start and finish and then made a focal point of one of the deep red beads, with an oval bead each side. I also had some small flat ovals, so used those for the tails of the fastener.
It just goes to show you can use anything to create these macrame bracelets. Here is another view.
