Stylish Summer Hemp Bracelets

Hemp jewelry never seems to go out of style, and it is one of the most often requested crafts I create.  And for good reason – it is incredibly strong, easy to work with, and withstands the tests of time and wear.  Honestly, I had never worked with hemp until a few years ago.  My prior experience with knotted bracelets however, was solely in embroidery floss, (which employs several of the same techniques) so the transition to hemp was fairly simple.

These lovely hemp bracelets are dedicated to the beginning of summer, and are great for people of all ages.  Each bracelet is constructed through a series of alternating square knots, punctuated by wooden vintage-style round beads.  The neutral color scheme of the bracelet, accented by the red and black bead patterns, truly make this a go-to piece for any summer outfit or occasion.

As alluded to above, I’ve also been working with my traditional medium of embroidery floss.  The plethora of colors available, along with the more pliable nature of floss,   allow for a vast array of color and pattern variations.  These are just a few simple examples, but I hope to feature larger, more complex pieces in the near future.

I particularly enjoy the piece which has come to be known as the “Rasta Bracelet.”  Constructed using the traditional technique of double overhand knots, these bracelets feature repeating bars of Rastafari red, gold & green separated by fields of black.  Adding dance and movement, thin braids dangle from either end of the bracelet, which really makes them stand out from the pack.  These bracelets are great for either gender, and add a playful splash to any ensemble.

If you are interested in either of the designs, please check my Etsy shop – they will be posted soon!  And of course, if you have an idea of your own you would like to see materialized, I am always available for custom requests.
