On our road trips this summer I was busy braiding using a seven strand hand-braiding technique which results in a more rope-like effect compared to 3 strand traditional braiding.  Each of these rope necklaces (approx. 20") are made using 4 foot lengths of varying colours and thicknesses of cord (hemp, cotton, silk, polyester) and braided using a seven strand hand-braiding technique. No two are the same!
