Hemp also known as cannabis is a plant that is famous (or infamous) as the source for producing marijuana. However, the plant’s fibers can be put to a number of positive uses which are both industrial, medicinal, fuel and decoration.
As ‘decoration’ is mentioned, one of the best uses of the hemp grass is to make ornaments, such as bracelets, anklets, and even earrings and hair-bands. Hemp bracelets are better than those made out of twine because they have a very good and smooth finish. The grass is easily available and the craft can be done by absolutely anyone who has a bit of interest.
There are many places on the net which will show you how to make hemp bracelets and visiting any of these sites will assure you of the simplicity of the project. All you need is a bit of patience and a bit of practice. The plus point with the hemp is that it is very pliant and you can do and undo the ornament you are planning as many times as you want without any actual harm. On the average it may take one or two days to master the trick of making a good piece.
There are many people who make a living out of making and selling hemp bracelets and other similar ornaments. Since the ornaments look good and have an exceptionally smooth finish they are well sought after. They also do not scratch the skin as twine and other similar material do.If you are a teenager and looking for a neat way to raise some cash for your weekend expenditure, making hemp bracelets and selling them to the local craft shop or directly to your friends and relatives is an idea. They look very trendy and at same time has an inherent ethnic look that appeal to almost anybody.
