Trying to see if I can still do this

Handknotting beads was one of our hobbies during the 1960's and 1970's, hippy time.

Bob and I worked on hundreds of necklaces. So I decided to make some perhaps for presents if I can still get the hang of it.
I do not have all of the materials yet, yikes they cost money!
Used to be so simple, we had a choice of perhaps 2 or3 cords now there are all sorts of gadgets, findings, and enough to spent your allowance in 10 minutes time.
They even have a knotter now which I do not like. Played a bit with what I did have this afternoon , made quite a few mistakes but I learned a ton from them.
Except for the hemp all pieces were
I think I will try a few more tomorrow.
