knots with neutral tone beads always look great. Think of the surfer necklaces or the fisherman's knot bracelets men have been wearing for centuries. Patterns with black/brown/tan and white can be very masculine. small sizes seem to work well, small shells, small beads in patterns, and geometrics seem to be popular as well.

Macrame lends itself well to gents jewellery. Wide cuffs are popular too, in peyote or net stitches. Bold colours work as well as dark and neutral ones. I find purples of most shades sell quite well. Knotted cord with wood beads goes down well too.

Thanks for the advice, I am actually working on a colourful collection of macrame for men. Just finished women's designs.

My husband once found one from stone beads all around with an arrowhead shaped center of the same stone.  He doesn't wear it much because it pinches, but a better made one with a similar design.... *goes to craft store to brainstorm*

Changing the stringing method could prove effective. Try beading with eye-pins and jump rings to create a chain-effect between beads. Previous suggestions (using metal/stone/bone beads) is also a good idea, ,either in conjunction with mine, or not.

If you want manly jewellery, use manly jewels - bolts, cogs, chunky lumps of metal, bits ripped out of PCs and videos.
