Using Hemp Cord in Jewelry Making

This has got to be one of the easiest materials to work with when making jewelry. Not only is it easy to use it is relatively inexpensive. Hemp Cord can be used to fashion simple bracelets, anklets, necklaces and even earrings.

It does not matter if you are a beginner or a seasoned jewelry maker when it comes to combining this cord with your designs. The designs you create can be as simple as a single strand of cord to the elaborate workings sometimes seen in beautifully woven macrame jewelry. Hemp Cord is a material fit for all jewelery makers.

Hemp Cord For Seasonal Jewelry Color

One of the things I personally like about using Hemp Cord is the array of color choices. This makes for wonderful seasonal expression in jewelry design fashion. Bright colors are available for summer fun, pastels for spring, earth tones for fall and so on. The many colors are also great for holiday jewelry designs.

You can combine the hemp with charms, beads and other jewelry findings to create one of a kind designs that fit your personal tastes and expound on seasonal expression. There is so much that can be achieved using hemp cord because truly your imagination is limitless.

Hemp Cord is not an expensive material for jewelry making and in fact is quite easy on the budget minded crafter.

Hemp Cord Is Not Expensive

When you take into consideration the number of finished jewelry pieces one might create using a single ball of purchased cord, you will find that the material is very inexpensive. This makes it a good product for manufacturing handcrafted jewelry. The average bracelet is only 7 1/2" long and many lengths of cord will come out of a single ball.

Even when you use this cord for macrame projects you will be created with a budget minded material. Large balls of hemp should cost under $5. and will produce multiple projects. I do suggest shopping around because the price can vary from store to store. A good place to find great bargains is by shopping on the Internet.

A Durable Material That is Eco-Friendly

This material is extremely sturdy. Many years ago hemp was used to make rope just as an example of it's strength. Today we find many products being manufactured from this organic material. From furniture covering to shoes, hemp has found it's way to center stage. There are an estimated 50,000 products being manufactured using this age old plant material.

It is also very Eco-friendly. This makes me a happy craft person. Hemp is organic, natural and simply magnificent when used in jewelry making. If you have not already given this material a try, I highly suggest you add it to your next jewelry making design.
