Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut 24" of hemp, now start to string on the beads in the order shown.
Step 2:
At the end of the main set of beads add a knot.
Step 3:
I added a couple more seed beads in between knots just to add interest.
  Step 4:
Then I looped my end and attached my crimp end. You can always add a touch of glue to your crimp end for security. Crimp it tight, then I added a crimp bead over it to cover. Now you can attach your jump rings and clasp to the crimp ends.
Step 5:
For the finishing touch attach your wood and resin focal.

    This will make a great spring/summer piece. I also like how you used the guru bail to attach the focal.
