I just started making hemp stuff, so they may be kind of plain looking. It's become very addicting though, and I hope I can make them look better in the future.  Wink













Hope the images aren't too big.
Thanks for looking Smiley

I love hemp jewelry.  In fact it is the only kind of jewelry I wear these days Grin

Any time I see some really awesome beads or stones I usually consider making something for myself or someone else.  However my ends are no where near as nice as yours.  I either tie mine on (yeah I've worn them until they fall off) or I use a safety pin as a clasp.  Where do you get your clasps and how do they work?

Those are all pretty. I especially like the bracelet with the multicolored beads (in the black background). Looks like they are a lot of fun to make!

I love making hemp jewelry. I love the idea of using the clasps instead of the knot. I love all of yours!! I have a kit with beads like the 5th picture of the anklet.

Thanks everyone  Cheesy

The clasps I use are called "crimp metal connectors" or something like that. They work really well! You have to bend the ends down as much as you can just to be on the safe side so they don't pull apart from the hemp. I need to buy more, they are awesome.
