Hemp Jewelry 101 – How to Make Two Basic Node Hemp Jewelry
About Hemp Jewelry
Hemp is a durable fiber made from cannabis plants. Although it is not legal to grow up in many parts of the United States, wearing and wearing jewelry is 100% legal. Most hemp strings are imported from China and are very rough. Hemp yarn is as soft as linen, it is possible to make it soft, but this quality is rare. However, no matter how coarse it is, it softens with any hemp wash. If you want your hemp jewelry piece to remain as hard as you do, try not to take a shower. On the other hand, some people look like a softer, more worn look that can be achieved by washing.
When making hemp jewelry, you are more likely to use macrame knots or knitting techniques to make a thicker cord. This guide will teach you the most common knot techniques used to make hemp jewelry.
Materials and Tools
To make hemp jewelry, you first need to select some hemp twine. Although cannabis now comes in many colors, the signature “natural tan halen is still the most popular. Most hemp jewelry is made of 1 mm or “20 lb im string. However, thicker strings can be used for good effect, especially for men’s necklaces. Make sure your record is of a flat thickness (not too many lumpy bits) and smooth (unless you like rough texture).
The easiest way to secure a buckle is through the metal cord ends. These pass through the ends of the cord, the skin grain or in this case hemp. There are several kinds. The two most popular types are those with metal caps that bend over the bead and the coil with the bottom curled around the bead.
Having hemp jewelry, having a tool to keep it in place really helps. One option is to attach it to your jeans or another fixed surface. Some people use some kind of clip, a book or board, or a specially designed macrame jewelry.
Two Basic Nodes
Most hemp jewelry consists of two basic nodes shown below. These nodes are the opposite of each other.
If you change these two nodes one after another, you get a straight pattern. If you do just one of the nodes (one of them) repeatedly, you get a spiral pattern that looks like a double helix.
Hemp Necklace Making
Plan Your Design
Get out of the bead plate and plan the placement of the beads. You may also want to determine which sections will be plain weave and which will be spiral weave.
Cut to 4 hemp length. The two form the base (shown in gray above) and should be slightly longer than the finished part. The other two (shown in blue and pink color above) will be used to make knots and must be at least 5 or 6 times longer than the finished part. The length may vary depending on the beads you can add – if you use too many large beads, you will need less cannabis because you will make less cannabis.
If you want a ring on one end of the part (you can use a button or knot clasp), cut only two pieces for the base and the other for the knot. Otherwise, do it twice as long, fold them and connect a loop.
Knot Your Necklace
Start tying your hemp as planned in your design. When you reach a bead, simply slide it over the two basic threads and firmly tie the next knot underneath.
Finishing Your Hemp Jewelery
You have several options for clips. Try it out and see what works for you!
Provide enough hemp to curl or tie the ends, and then connect them together. This is the easiest and simplest way to finish.
Button Toggle Clasp
This requires some foresight. When you start your piece, instead of cutting 4 threads, cut 2 ropes twice as long and then double them in half. Connect the knot over the hand to form a loop at the folded end. Continue knotting and when you’re done, throw a large bead, button or knot on the other end. It catches and holds the beads when you paste them into the loop.
If you end the ends of your hemp piece with metal or wire tips, you can use a normal buckle. These pass through the ends of the cord, the skin grain or in this case hemp. There are two types, one with metal caps twisting on the cord, and the other with a coil where you twist the cord. Then use jump rings to attach a standard buckle.
Hi Can someone send me a picture showing how to connect this loop to use a button as the closing of my bracelet (I’m a visual person to me). I am confused about using 4 not two strings to do this. I’m sorry, I hope you don’t mind. Thank you for the wonderful guide.
Normally, you would use 4 different length ropes of a certain length, say 10 inches. Instead, start with a 2-length string that is twice the length – that is, 20 inches. Then fold these long ropes in half. Now you have 4 10-inch wires as before, but connected at one end. At the connected end, you will knot a manual knot and have a loop. Do your knotting and use a knob at the other end.
There are two nodes in the picture. One is labeled Node One and the other Node Two.
If you want a flat weave, Node One, then Two Nodes, then One Node, then Two Nodes, etc. Structure.
If you want a spiral weave, do Node One, then Node One again and again and again and again.
If you practice, you will begin to feel that Node One and Node Two are the same node, but vice versa. Then it would make more sense to do one and the other, the alternatives lie flat, but if you do the same thing over and over, it will bend.

Bringing macromeles of the 20th century here and now
I have to admit that until recently, the list of things I want to hang on my macrame walls will be at the end – when I grew up, it brought back memories of the moldy brown pieces I found in dozens of thrift stores. A particular macrame find – an owl made of twine – comes to mind. However, if you take the time to them, as proof that the flavors and trends have become a complete cycle (I’m betting the owl gets a nice penny in some old vintage boutiques right now) I’ve found myself with pleasure recently (not like that) Art.
Finally my example – my friend Jess recently bought the most beautiful wall hanging in Etsy (as you can see below) and it is full of neons to add a modern cool touch. After seeing this, I was desperate to know more about how these pieces were created – and I was very happy when Himo Art May agreed to stop running out. May did a great job of bringing the macro of the 20th century here and now (the last macromeles became perfect for me), and I was delighted that she decided to look at it – it turned out to be quite complicated – the process. It’s time to Improve your knotting skills, kids!
Things that you need:
- Wooden Dowel
- Wooden Breads
- Paint Brush
- Masking Tape
It can attach dowels to the wall – it uses a removable hook, because it’s a great way to not make holes in the wall.
It can cut the rope into 14 x 4 yard pieces and 2 x 5 yard pieces. It then begins tying the rope to the head nodes of the larvae and compiling the dowel with 5 yard pieces (one at each end) into a book.
The rest can continue with ropes.
Then it makes double half axle knot.
And it goes on and on.
By the end, May begins tying them diagonally across the ropes.
You can add wooden beads here and here before connecting the nodes.
Then each starts to connect the switch nodes using 4 ropes.
Can connect 8 of them.
And he brings them crosswise.
You can add more beads and bring the knots to the end.
It can then cut the ends of the rope.
Covers a portion of the dowel ends to paint and add a hint of neon (a woman from my own heart!)
Finally, he adds a watermelon pop to the end of the rope.
And there, hung a magnificent macrame wall. I can appreciate the work that goes into these pieces – not a craft for withered or ham!
