After I bought some hemp for my knotted twine and (faux) pearls idea, I had a lot left over. Like, a lot. And I could have done more, but I wanted to branch out. My big issue with that design is that twine and hemp are too heavy to string through actual pearls, in addition to most conventionally-drilled beads, so if I wanted to go for that look I would have to use something imitation. (The ones pictured in that image are plastic.)
Rather than use imitation pearls, I decided to see what else I could do with these supplies. I've made a few wrap bracelets, like this blue and black pi piece, but that was about it. Then I remembered all the bracelets I would weave over a couple of summers at the beach. A bit of Googling over how to make a square knot, and I was back in business, though I was surprised at much I remembered!
|Pi. My square knots need a little practicing, though.|
|Yet another DNA bracelet. I'm just seeing double helix spirals everywhere!|
I don't know if this is a style I want to continue to offer. I like the wood and hemp look but I wonder if it's too much of a departure from my usual style?
