I made it a little thicker, to be stronger. The first one had 2 strands of 1mm hemp as the base, the revamp version has 4 strands of 1 mm hemp as the base. I also added a gray strand to it, to give it a hint of color. This is not an inch longer at 8 1/2 inches, making it almost the perfect size for an anklet. Will make custom sizes.
