Artisan from Wartick Ravels Hemp Jewelry
Hello! My name is Amber and I am the Artisan of Wartick Ravels Hemp Jewelry! I first discovered Hemp and started learning Macramè late Summer of 2014. I have enjoyed making every piece that I have done so far! When I was confident enough, I decided to open a Shop on Etsy. It was the best decision ever.
I add new colors of Hemp Twine and all sorts of Beads and Pendants to my collection regularly. If you have something in mind that is currently not available in my Shop, please feel free to message me and I will work with you!
