Hemp braid

I used hemp cord as boning for a bodice and Renaissance corset a couple years ago, and I had some left over, so one day I started braiding it, with notions of making a belt. And then of course I never got around to the belt, and took a fancy to making necklaces out of it, and three necklaces later here we are. I can't possibly wear all these, though; I'm contemplating selling them or something.
hemp braid and copper charm necklaceThis necklace is a double strand of hemp braid and clock-themed copper charms.
hemp braid and gun metal necklaceThis necklace is pretty plain, just the braid and the gun metal wire clasp as decoration.

Pearls and ribbon. A bit of an experiment, but I rather like it.
