Shiny silver beads strung on navy navy hemp cording. Like twinkling stars on a field of blue sky at dusk...

Concept Realized!

I decided to go two with strands. One was nice, but I thought it needed a little more. I used two different sizes of the brass beads on the red hemp cording.

Red Boho Concept

I liked my Rouge Hemp and Copper necklace so much, I decided I want to make a longer version. Here is my initial idea:

I have some small antiqued copper beads that would go really well with the tubes I used on the shorter necklace. In the illustration I have a single strand. Since the cording is so thin, I am torn between making it thin and delicate, or layering for more "heft". The existing piece has three strands and is still pretty delecate, but I kind of like that about it. It is simple and understated which gives it an air of sophistication you wouldn't normally associate with hemp jewelry.

Concept Realized

I made my sister's necklace that I teased and then some. I also made a necklace for my mom. These were designs I had in mind for them for a while and thank goodness, they liked them!
