I teach glass beadmaking in Florence, Italy and one of my students is a young lady named Michela (from southern Italy) who makes the coolest stuff! I really like her recent series of hemp cord necklaces that feature her own handmade glass beads and wanted to show them off. She has perfected a style of wrapping the hemp cord in such a way so as to give the necklace a very unique look and feel. Soft to the touch, the hemp cord wrap becomes even more comfortable with use. The ends are knotted and sheared, creating a loop clasp that holds both securely and comfortably. Take a look:









And here are a few that feature my own beads:







She has a MySpace page that shows off more of her work (although the text is in Italian): http://www.myspace.com/MichelaFusaro Thanks for looking!

Those are just so beautiful!  Shocked I love the hemp robe cord look, gives it a casual look. She did an amazing job and if she were here in the US, I'd buy some of her pieces lol Cheesy
