Macramé or macrame is a form of textile-making using knotting rather than weaving or knitting. Its primary knots are the square knot (a variant of the reef knot) and forms of “hitching”: full hitch and double half hitches. It was long crafted by sailors, especially in elaborate or ornamental knotting forms, to decorate anything from knife handles to bottles to parts of ships.
Everyone does it differently, with his own style, but the technique to start is the same for all styles. You can use many different colors and beads, the ones you enjoy and like.

A choker is a close-fitting necklace worn around the neck. Chokers can be made of a variety of materials, including velvet, plastic,beads, leather, metal, such as silver, gold or platinum, etc. They can be adorned in a variety of ways, including with sequins, studs, or a pendant.
The common type of chokers include Victorian, vintage, open collar, Gothic, pendant, gemstones, or tattoo.
Historically, it was associated with high fashion, but could take on different meanings under different circumstances. Ballerinas and the upper class in the late 19th century commonly wore certain types of chokers. However, at that same time, a plain, thin, red or black ribbon choker had ties to prostitutionin the late 19th century, while a plain black woven choker or ribbon could signify secret lesbianism in the Depression era.
Chokers became quite popular among women and girls in the 1990s. The 1990s fashion trend has recently resurfaced in the mid-2010s.
Of course the first one who started this trend again is Kylie Jenner, no wonder how fast this trend spreaded all over the world.
