It all started with a bag of beads and a ball of hemp – shop owner’s story
Hemp Beadery is a one stop shop for hemp products, beads and craft supplies. Hemp cords and twine can be supplied in bulk for industry and retail.
Shop owners story – After leaving college in Liverpool, England a career job did not interest me but traveling the world did. My mum taught me to macrame at the age of 6 and making hemp jewelry later helped support my world travels for nearly 10 years. In the 1990’s I managed one of the first hemp stores to open in Colorado, USA & travelled the country attending HIA ( Hemp Industry Association) meetings & hemp trade shows. I started my first business in 2000 after an accident left me unable to work in Australia. All I had at the time was a bag of beads and a ball of hemp and selling hemp jewelry helped pay for a bed at a local youth hostel. I ended up selling so many pieces of jewelry to travelers and local surf shops I opened a stall at Fremantle Markets in Perth and stayed there for two years.
