Hemp Hemp Hemp! Aug 14, 2005
Fun and easy. Although it does smell a bit, but the smell is of....hemp!
Great introduction to making Hemps! Mar 5, 2003
I have to say that I love this book! I'll admit that it did not come with enough beads or hemp, but you can buy those cheaply at any craft store!! This book has so many patterns to try, and gives the simplest directions! I would definately reccomend this book to people, because it is fun and easy. *I would reccomend it for kids 9 and up*
Decent Introduction Jan 24, 2002
The knots are easy to learn and usually described clearly except for every twist of the spiral on the bracelet (about four separate knots) then the braiding cords start to twist, too. You can essentially change direction every 4 knots to take out the difficulty in the braiding cords. If this doesn't make sense, just try to do the spiral as described in the book and you will find the braiding cords get twisted up. Also there were definitely *not* enough beads. Right after getting the book, I bought a bag of plastic pony beads to practice more. I really enjoy making these bracelets, but overall I expected more out of this book. I recommend it as a decent introduction to hemp beading which is an exceptionally enjoyable craft.
This book is KNOT good, it's great! Jul 20, 2000
This was a good book, and I loved doing all the knots and especially not having to go buy everything for it. All you have to do is get a pair of scissors and begin. Out comes professional jewelry that you will love. So, I guess you are wondering why I gave it 4 stars. Because the knots don't stay. Several times the knots came out on the bracelets. If you want the bracelet to just stay on, it won't. If you plan to take it off all the time, the loop and knot idea is cool. Secondly, there are two designs that you have to used your own judgment on how big the loops should be and if it's straight. I'm a perfectionist, so that was a challenge for me. All in all, I am harsh just giving it just 4 stars,butI will still recommend it to my friends.
