Ok, so this isn't the hardest thing really to make. But it does take awhile and get tedious at times.

This one took awhile because each of the beads had holes that were too small to thread the hemp through so I have this nifty little tool I found at Wal-Mart called a Bead Reamer.. And it works great at making the holes bigger in nearly every type of bead. The only problem is that it is time consuming and can wear your hands out. The charm I made using shrinkie dinks.

This one is one of my favorites. I made myself one with pink beads like this before. Again I had to use the Bead Reaming tool to make the holes bigger.

This one is simple but really cute. I just alternated the strands to weave the different colors. And just used small pony beads.

My mom taught me how to do the square knot...it's used in macrame. And then it sort of just took off and I've been addicted to making things ever since. Thanks!  Wink

The last one is cool. I've never seen any done like that before.
