I’d never try and make one as there are far more creative people there than I…..BUT, I do have a friend that makes hemp bracelets and such, and she follows patterns in a Macrame book but using hemp fibers and string.
It has five easy tasks to do, including materials, measuring your hemp, and then knotting after it comes reverting and finally wrapping up the artwork.
To expand the idea, you must seek the top related categories about how to make a necklace But be aware of the amount you need depending on whether you are making a bracelet or necklace. In either scenario, you will need at 12* the length of the measurements, for instance, if your neck is 16″ you must get 192″ of hemp.
Hemp necklaces are usually made using a macrame method, which means you knot and braid the hemp fibers.
Hemp necklaces are made through knotting and braiding a thick cord of hemp. You need to prepare the necessary materials to create the hemp necklace, such as hemp cord, beads, and scissors. In creating the jewelry, you need to choose the hemp twine first. Second, decide the type of necklace that you want to make. You can use only the string or add beads for the kind of necklace you want. Third, cut the hemp in your preferred length. Fourth, fold the cords in half where the shorter length on the outside while the longer on the inside. Fifth, tie the overhand knot at the end of the loops. Sixth, arrange the cords by putting the shorter strands on the inside while the longer strands on the outside. Seventh, tie a half – square knot. Eight, draw up the knot. Ninth, you can add beads onto the center to know or continue knotting. And tenth, repeat the process and just finish it when you reached the length that you want your necklace to be.
Moogdummy pointed it out very nicely. Additionally, hemp necklaces are made the same way any necklace is. You will especially want to weight your string while making it, as stated above, allowing the use of both of your hands. Hemp is very durable and weather-resistant, making it a great material to use for accessories like necklaces and bracelets.
I’d suggest looking up macrame instructions! There are so many different styles, ranging from simple to very ornate! But, any of the instructions you can find can be made with hemp string!
You need to know how to make a square knot.
As a general rule, you will need at least 12x the length of whatever your measurements are.
If your neck is 15 inches, then you will need 180 inches of hemp.
Create the loop that will be the base necklace loop that goes around your neck.
Secure the loop with a weight so you can have two free hands to complete the rest of the necklace.
Fold the base strand in half to create the end clasp that will be used.
Then, fold the long strand in half and wrap its loop around the base strand’s loop.
You’re now ready to start doing your square knotting that was mentioned earlier.
In between square knotting, add your beads or whatever decorations that you want on your necklace.
Trim off the excess, and tie and ending knot if need be, and then you’re done!
