These range in size from 3" long, .5" wide to 4" wide and 2.5" long. They all use knotted cord. I don't use any special clasps. I think this jewelry looks better with the plain cord.

I will be posting some new photos soon. I’m sending items to him in  a couple of days. I didn’t really want to start making jewelry, but I found myself with quite a few jewelry supplies-much of what I work with comes to me from  people who don’t know what to do with what they’re giving me and can’t bear to throw it out….”I know you can make something with this!”

It’s wonderful compliment and what I really, really like to do. In this case, I got some jewelry supplies, some broken gourds and saw something I hadn’t seen before.

These pictures aren’t that great, but I am having such a great time making this jewelry that I wanted to share that. Comments welcome!
