Hemp braiders out there?
This is my stuff. The white cowry is my 5th piece completed. It's really enjoyable, and I think they came out lovely. The magnetic clasps are my favorite. Hard to install, yet easy to operate.
nice work! you must be working with better quality hemp than I can get my hands on here. Its been years since I've made anything, though.

I'm not sure about the quality. I bought standard hemp twine at JoAnn's fabric, and I also bought waxed/colored at our new bead shop. Lovin the bead shop BTW.
Hmmmm, bead shop for colored hemp.... Thanks for the tip. Now I know where to get the hemp twine to wrap the ends of my handlebar tape when I get the old Gran Sport rolling.
Nice work. I kinda like doing maille (chainmail) myself. It's a great way to reuse broken stainless steel bike spokes.
The kind that smokes it?
