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.
