So, if they can get all that done then I think I can add an extra surprise post every once in awhile. I have so many different things that I want to show you so, I've decided to try to add a "Show and Tell" post from time to time. I'll show you some clothing, jewellery, and other things that I've made for myself or other special people in my life that don't make it into the Etcetorize Etsy Shop. There won't be any tutorials on these posts, just fun pictures to look at.
I thought I'd start with some Hemp Accessories:
It seems like a lifetime ago that I used to live in Japan. While I was there I really immersed myself into the craft culture. They have the most amazing craft and fabric stores there. And so many gadgets! I wouldn't mind taking a trip back there just to see what they've come up with while I've been away.
One of the things that I spent alot of time on while I was there was all kinds of jewellery making. I learned beading, weaving, wire working, and knotting. Today I'll show you some of the more interesting pieces of Hemp accessories that I made while I was overseas.

Japanese crafting books are the ultimate. If you ever come across one, don't let the language scare you away. They're so well illustrated that they're not difficult to follow at all.
What do you think? Have you ever tried learning a new craft in a different language? I hope this inspires you to look at hemp knotting differently and maybe even give it a go in a new and exciting way~
