Well, I decided to start putting my jewelry on here starting with the smallest group: HEMP! I love working with hemp. Not only is it a natural product to use, but it's really easy to work with. These hemp pieces are brand new, which is why they look stiff and misshaped. Hemp needs to be worn in order to break it in. The best way, believe it or not, is to wear it in the shower. The soap and water help to speed up the process.
