Hey humble, being the geek that I am I was thinking how much the twisting pattern you used on my bracelet looks so much like a strand of DNA, that I was wondering whether it's possible to make it so that it's colour coded like an actual DNA diagram? ie. all the same colour going around the outside of the strand, and alternating colours in the middle. Or is it made so that you have to use every piece of hemp alternately??

Hmm.... I think it's possible to do it that way. Because you use two strands folded over, one's longer than the other though. But I don't think you can see the shorter string because you're continually tying knots around it. Maybe if you died it in such a way, it may be able to...Cause really it's just the same pretzel knot around a string the whole way down. So what you see in the "middle" is one of the side of hemp crossing the other side. Make sense? At first I thought it may be possible that you could have two different colored peices of hemp, but now I don't think so because you never see the string inside. If the longer of the two peices of hemp was colored, then the whole necklace would be, say green, if the color was green. But if you went in with a dropper and died it, then I'm sure you could. I hope this makes sense lol.  Huh  Cool

Oh ok, I get what you mean. It's a shame though, coz I know heaps of science geeks that would love DNA bracelets! I might just have to make them then colour all the bits in afterwards (which will probably take forever!).
