When it comes to jewelry, most people will find they have at least one hemp necklace amongst their inventory. These were quite popular in the 60’s and 70’s and while they went out of style in the 80’s, they are now back, along with bell bottoms and peace signs.
If you are looking to make your own hemp necklaces, you’ll be able to find all of the supplies you need at local department or craft stores or online. The hemp cord or twine used to be available in beige only, but it has come to the forefront and is now available in many shades of blues, greens, and reds. You will even be able to get it in black which is a favorite of jewelry makers.
When making hemp necklaces, you’ll also want to be on the look out for some interesting beads for decoration. You will be able to find these made out anything from glass to plastic and from silver to brass. The styles and variety of jewelry you can make is enormous. Add a little color with some dyed hemp cord or use the plain beige and use colorful beading.
If you are not the crafty person and would prefer to buy your hemp necklaces instead of making them, you’ll be able to do this with ease. Most department stores and boutiques will care necklaces that are made from hemp. You’ll be able to find these in a wide variety of designs and styles, as well.
While hemp is illegal to grow in the United States, many countries now harvest this product and import it into the Unites States and other countries. It is used widely for making hemp jewelry, including hemp necklaces. The other uses for hemp include ropes, crafts, clothing, and body care products.
