Macrame Bracelet Giveaway and Blog Launch

We are so excited about this macrame bracelet giveaway and, dare we say, blog launch! Yep, it is true… we have finally launched the blog that we have been talking about doing for so long. Coco and I will use this platform to showcase Coco’s methods, works in process, and new designs. We will also give you glimpses into our chaotic but loving family life, as well as share our journey on learning the ins and outs of running a small arts business. We also can’t wait to introduce you to some of the talented artists we have the privilege of meeting at art shows. As the supportive wife of Coco and writer of this blog, I can only promise you raw honesty and flawed writing. Wit, humor, and entertainment? Perhaps some days, but there are certainly no guarantees. We have a toddler, after all! So without further ado, welcome to our blog. Coco and I are thrilled you came by. Here is the giveaway prize in all of her knotty glory…

"Macrame Bracelet"

      Thanks for your thoughts, Nick. Editing and posting video is the next step in our learning process! Coco is camera ready. The studio, on the other hand, is not. I suppose we will have to show it like it is!

      Thank you, Darlene! Macrame has a very long history in South America and many other parts of the world. Coco is happy to carry on the tradition of his Quechua ancestors here in the USA.

      Hi Robbie, It is so nice to see you here. Are you the customer that lived nearby Rittenhouse? We hope to do that show again next year. It was a fantastic opportunity to exhibit in Philadelphia. Btw, the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen is running the show twice next year. Once in May and again in October. Twice the fun!

      Thank you Brittany! It is so nice to hear from someone with Peruvian roots! We hope to see you in Montauk again this summer. The show is every Memorial Day weekend and the third weekend in August. We love our time on Montauk!

  7. When I wear the necklaces you made I am inevitably complimented on them and asked where I got them. I really enjoy both the macrame one and the silver one.

      Hi Susan, thanks for the Philly love! A store in Collingswood is not in the works right now, but maybe one day! If you ever need anything in the meantime, you are welcome to stop by our home in Collingswood and visit the studio.

  9. Evelyn, Went to my doc yesterday wearing your beautiful necklace. When the nurse saw it, her eyes opened real wide and she said “where did you get that” and “it’s beautiful and looks like it has a story behind it.” I told her where I got it and that she could find you on Etsy. So here’s hoping you’ll get another customer!

    Rumi, Hope I win your beautiful bracelet. It would go great with my “new” red hair 🙂 Saw your work at last week’s show . . .it is beautiful!

      Thank you, Rita, for coming out to the DCCA event. We have had customers frame and display Coco’s macrame work before. He is thinking of making some sculptural macrame pieces as well. I hope he does it!

  12. I couldn’t be prouder of my brother-in-law’s creative designs and of my sister’s boundless dedication to her husband’s art! Congrats on the blog! Love you both! And if I don’t win, Christmas is just around the corner…

  13. I agree with everyone who wants to hear about the creative process (inspiration, technique, etc). If it’s not too much, since I know you’re already writing one dissertation :-), I’d also love to hear about history: Coco’s and how he got into all this and where/how he learned his craft, as well as the history of macrame in Peru and the U.S. I also think it would be fascinating to hear the ins and outs of what it’s like to run a small business from someone “on the ground”.

    And lots of photos please. His work is beautiful, and so is your son!

  17. Coco’s art is just amazing. I purchased one of his necklaces for a colleague during Art Within Reach. I gave it to her the other day and she was just thrilled. What a treat to have such an amazing artist here in Colls!
