How I Got Here

10 years ago I learned how from my sister to do the basic knotting required for hemp, and I just worked from there. I used patterns based on the basic knots. Then I started learning new and more complicated knots and even started making some up on my own.
I usually plan out my design ahead of time, sometimes I make it up. I have about 100 beads to work with at a time, and usually 3 thicknesses of hemp. Getting beads to coordinate in a piece of jewelry is hard, but I manage.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 18, 2012
Welcome to my Shop! I encourage the use of organic products and therefore only buy hemps that have been dyed organically! The dye will never come out unless you bleach it. Almost all of my glass beads are one of a kind. I encourage the use of beads as a work of art, and therefore I try to make each peace of jewelry a totally original piece of art.
