We went to Michael’s to buy some thicker hemp today. The hemp that Erik “the Hippie” was using in his tutorial was much thicker and is what I wanted to buy but Michael’s didn’t have it. They had the #20 and #48 but no thicker. They actually had a thicker one but it wasn’t the same stuff and it was extremely itchy. I’m not going to get an itchy cord to wrap around my neck and constantly be irritated from it.
The #20 is good for rings and for smaller projects but not very good for making necklaces. I don’t know how the #48 is going to look yet so I’ll find out when I start working with it.
Chips bracelet keeps falling off of his wrist so I’m going to make him another one because I bought some barrel clasps that I’m going to put on his new one and my new one too. I don’t mind using a pony bead as a clasp but if they are going to keep falling off then it’s not worth it. I also wanted the barrel clasp for making a necklace because I don’t want extra hemp cord tickling the back of my neck.
I didn’t get any extra beads because I have plenty for now. Also, I’m still a beginner so I don’t want to have all these extra craft supplies if I burn out on it you know what I mean?
So, off I go to remake our bracelets to find out if this new stuff is thick enough for a necklace.
