Hi,

I am 73 years old & I am a wife, mother, grandmother, & great grandmother.

I have learned to make Hemp Jewelry and I love it so much, I have changed the name of my shop from xstitchnmomma to LoveKnotsAndMore. I'm making Bracelets, necklaces, anklets and key chains. I hope you like my work.

This is my passion. I love creating the items listed in my shop. Each of these pieces are handmade by me. Nothing for sale here is mass produced.

If you are allergic to different metals, hemp jewelry is a great alternative to regular jewelry.

If you are interested in any of my bracelets, please keep in mind, the bracelet length should be about an inch larger than your wrist. Please…

If you are interested in any of my bracelets, please keep in mind, the bracelet length should be about an inch larger than your wrist. Please measure your wrist before purchasing any of my bracelets. If you are interested in purchasing a hemp bracelet with large beads, please remember, the beads will take up a little more room. You should probably add at least an inch and a half to the measurement of your wrist. Many of these bracelets would be great stacking them on your wrists.

I have been searching the internet trying to find out how long hemp twine will last as jewelry. All I keep finding out is that hemp goes back to the time of the great prymids of Egypt and before. They fashioned hemp into ropes and it has been made into sails and clothes, paper and etc. It is supposed to be better than cotton. I still haven't found anywhere where it says a bracelet made with hemp twine or hemp cord will last so many months or years. I believe it will last a long time, depending on whether you wear it all the time or not. Pieces that are meant to be tied on and worn until they fall off will not last as long as pieces that you put on and take off.

I love to read & love to do counted cross stitch. My daughter gave me my first counted cross piece to do. She said "come on mom, you can do it".... So, to make a long story short...I've been cross stitching for about 20 years now. It's very addictive!

I do counted cross stitch pieces suitable for framing, or whatever your imagination tells you to do with them. I also make cards & bookmarks, key rings,etc. I believe any handmade, handcrafted card or bookmark is a "one of a kind" item. You will not see them duplicated. Even if several people use the same design.... they will not be exactly alike.

I have Finished Pieces ready to frame or use however you want. I have Greeting Cards, Bookmarks, Magnets & Small Framed Pieces.

I am using "reclaimed, recycled" buttons for some of my cross stitch pieces.
From time to time I will have some papercraft cards.

My latest venture is making wire wrapped rings and gemstones.. It's a bit of a challenge getting it all together and tight but, I'm getting it done.

I hope you will stop by my shop and take a look. Have a great day.
