A flat macramé lotus motif
Just the one picture. No instructions. An interesting contrast to all the 3D macramé lotus flowers we've seen.

How to macramé a peach blossom bracelet
The poster called this a peach blossom which is good or I would be dithering over cherry and plum blossoms. 8-) In any case, the flower motifs are actually separate units threaded onto the finished bracelet. Detailed how to instructions for the flowers and a quick assembly overview for the bracelet.

Two tone circular mat
4 views, no instructions, but the photography should be clear enough to duplicate such a flat design even without.

How to tie this double coin based ornament
Other than the 4x2 bao knot in the middle of the top butterfly (and a few double connection knots) the rest of the knots in this ornament are all double connection knot variants. The photo instructions here are a little blurry and not at the best angle, but if you really want to make this, all the parts are presented here, more or less.

How to macramé the cylindrical decorations next to the pearls
This interesting and unusual necklace (or ornament with beaded hanger that looks an awful lot like a necklace) has many parts (tassels, medallion, tassel cover, etc). Detailed instructions are given in the post for the cylindrical macramé decorations on the cross-stick (?) between the mini-tassels and the pearl finials.
