Polymer beaded necklaces and pins.

I live in Michigan and have enjoyed tying knots for a number of years. Recently, I discovered polymer clay and began utilizing it in my hemp jewelry. Each polymer clay picture bead is individually hand crafted, making it unique. These beads are used in macrame' hemp necklaces, or strung on leather cord, according to your preferences. Some of the more detailed designs may look painted on in the photographs. Please know these designs are not painted, but crafted of polymer as well.

I have added many new styles of beaded necklaces this year. They have been added to various new pages in my examples section.

Necklaces may also be personalized by including a vial containing a grain of rice with your name on it. Any name or word may be written up to 9 letters on each side. The vial contains an oil, magnifying the tiny letters so they can be seen. The top has a rubber stopper and is permanently attached to prevent fluid from leaking. Hand-blown glass vial shapes available are: test-tube, mushroom, dolphin, heart, cross, tusk, and anchor.

Hemp name bracelets are very popular and come in a wide variety of colors. I have also seen them used as keychains and nametags for book bags. These hemp bracelets may also be presented as a gift tag on that special present!

Patriotic USA bracelets and cause ribbons have recently been added to our pages. These are very popular and readily available in many sizes. Show your support of our beautiful country!

Hemp keychains are available in the same styles as the hemp name bracelets. You may have any name, pet, car, hobby, sport, etc. spelled out on them. These are popular in favorite team or school colors. Metal pewter finish number beads are used for graduation years.

There are currently 15 examples pages of my hemp and leather necklaces and bracelets on this site. Additional photos may be seen on the new items page. I have added an additional page where you may view some of my original fine artworks.

Be sure to check out my craft show schedule. I travel the craft shows in Michigan and have many more jewelry products not pictured on this site. I would love to meet you at one of these craft shows if you are in the area. There are also other places where my work can be seen listed on the awards and honors page.

I am working on a number of new pages full of information for fellow craft lovers. These pages may not be completed for some time, though I beleive they are beginning to take shape. They will include features such as tips on getting started in the arts and crafts business, a free arts and crafts show directory, arts and crafts books, and more. I hope you will check them out and let me know what you think (constructive critisism is welcome).

Thank you,
