Russian macrame Curtain old style - new look

I came to USA in 2005 from Moscow, Russia. I've been doing macrame as my hobby since I was 5 years old. I start with small macrame placemats, then I start making plant hangers and at the age of 10 I was making those huge macrame curtains. (Believe me, when you are 10 years old and need to make one macrame curtain - yes they looks huge))

After I came to Seattle in 2005 I start learning what kind of threads you have and you have a lot. Here I start with plant hangers, I did make some of placemats, I made my own macrame wine rack. And of course Russian macrame curtain.

Now I'm more in to jewelry, but still accepting custom orders on macrame curtains. I found that I'm more enjoying making macrame jewelry using natural gemstones.

And for those who were asking me how I made these Russian style macrame curtain– I now have some photos. It takes about 2-3 days to make one – if no kids around. You can see me in process. I was lucky with this creation in Russia – and I need some extra luck with this one in USA .

We sold 2 of this. One was a black Celtic style. And the other white as I catch it on photos. So if you are on the market for something WOOW – nobody have – you can place your custom order direct messaging me at
And now take a look at photos – and feel free to post your comment !

Привет, это я снова:).
Шторы из макраме очень оригинально, я вот ни у кого из знакомых не припоминаю.
Наверно руки быстро устают -на весу плести всё время?
А ты не пробовала вплетать бусины в макраме, н-р какие-нить деревянные?
Удачи в продажах!
Рит, ты вчера зашла *в гости* не туда:)), и я увидела оставила коммент к посту другой девушки, которую я догадываюсь ты приняла за меня:))

Nice work! I would like to have the same in my flat. I wish I can do such beauty by myself. Very interesting what are the prices and the colors you can do them. Do you work on personal orders?
