About this design:

A friend of mine just got some hemp from LB and she gave me some to try it out. I was planning to make something soft and earthy with this beautiful dusty purple hemp and then look what happened. LOL!


Hemp and Green Girl small star button from LB, various seed beads from my stash.

    OOOhh Aawwee! You have transformed some dusty purple elements into a work of art Angela! I could never get seed beads to look this gorgeous, and the GG star button is the icing on the cake!

    Agree that the star button is truly the star here – - love how you used the luster seed beads with the matte hemp. Really pretty, Angela !

    Nice work! I’ve done many of these on leather, but I wouldn’t consider doing it on the hemp…Looks great!

    Angela this braclet is too pretty for words. I love the hemp as opposed to leather. Can these be done with suede?

    Yes Deb, you can absolutely do them with suede. My friend did one up last week and it’s really cute and a softer look than with leather cord. You’d probably like it a lot.
