<p>This was my first time working with hemp, but I enjoyed it. I used black as the longer strings, and a light sky blue for the inside.</p>
I have looked at a number of &quot;tutorials&quot; for this but have not yet found one I could follow, that is UNTIL TODAY!! You did a great job explaining this!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
<p>This was my first hemp bracelet I made. I like how it came out.</p>
About how much hemp do you need per inch of bracelet? I know for making paracord bracelets you need one foot of paracord per one inch of bracelet.
To make hemp jewelry, you first need to select some hemp twine. Although hemp now comes in many colors, the signature &quot;natural tan&quot; color is still the most popular. Most hemp jewelry is made from 1mm or &quot;20 lb&quot; twine. However, I have seen thicker twines used to good effect, especially for men's necklaces. Make sure your twine is an even thickness (not too many lumpy bits) and smooth (unless you like the rough texture). You might try waxing your hemp<a href="http://www.necklaceshopping.com" rel="nofollow"> jewelry sale</a>as well, if you like that look.
You explained this so well. I think I can do it. Thank you
