Finishing Hemp Bracelets and Necklaces – Factory Direct Craft Blog Finishing a creative item is sometimes more difficult than beginning one, and producing hemp jewelry is no exception. Let’s take a look at a few easy techniques to complete hemp jewelry so that it may go from the workbench to your wrist, ankle, or neck where it belongs: Creating a Bead Clasp Slide a bead onto each bracelet cord, then tie an overhand knot below the bead and remove the excess strands.
- If the bead hole is too tiny to accommodate all of the cables, trim one or two cords close to the end and glue them in place.
- Then, thread the bead onto the remaining threads and create a square knot.
- Insert the bead through the loop on the opposite end to secure the bracelet.
- How to Make a Button Closure Instead of using a button with holes, thread all of the cords through a shank-style button, then tie an overhand knot below the button and remove the excess.
Cut and glue the strands that won’t fit, then thread the button through the loop on the opposite end to fasten. (Tip: Ensure that at least two strands pass through the shank of the button; otherwise, this sort of closure will be too fragile.) Making a Knot Closure Simply make an overhand knot at the end of your completed piece and thread it through the looped end to secure.
If the knot is too small to fit snugly within the loop, undo and retie by adding a few additional twists before tightening. When beginning a project, keep the ultimate result in mind so that the first loop is sufficiently long (or tiny) to fit the closure. Instead of limiting your creations to button and bead closures, keep an eye out for shells, fossils, and pebbles with through-and-through holes, or search for unusual objects that may be simply drilled and slid onto your projects.
