Cut 2 x 30cm length strands and 2 x 1 meter length strands.
Fold a 30cm length of cord in half and use a larks head knt to secure it to the parallel side of the hexagon. Repeat for the opposite side.
Choose one side of your charm and secure those threads to a work surface so that the cords stay taught. Bring the two threads together as they will act as one thread running through the centre of the knots. Thread one of your longer lengths of thread under both the cords to the halfway point. Tie a normal overhand knot at the base of the 20cm thread close to the charm.
Start your macrame knotting by following these images.
- Take your right hand cord and pass it over the middle two cords.
- Next, take your left hand cord and place it over the right cord. Move the left cord under the centre cord and up through the middle of the loop on the right side.
- Pull the threads to finish one half of your knot.
- Repeat this process on the the same side each time.
After you have make 12 knots, slide a bead onto the centre cords and continue to knot until you have made two inches all together.
Take the 4 ends of the centre cords, lay them side by side and then do a macramé braid (approx. 6 or 7 square knots) for your sliding knot. The square knot is like the sliding knot, but you repeat the steps on the opposite side.
Secure the ends with a drop of glue, being careful not to glue the sliding knot to the centre cords running through it (otherwise it will not be able to slide and adjust). Try gently pulling the centre cords through the sliding knot while the glue dries. Trim the ends so the sliding knot is neat. Tie on your key charm and beads to the ends of the cords.
Attach the bee to the hexagon charm with a jumpring.
