About Us

It all started with a bag of beads and a ball of hemp – shop owner’s 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 and travelled the country attending HIA ( Hemp Industry Association) meetings and 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. The mountains lured me back to Colorado eventually where i owned and operated two retail stores of my own selling jewelry and accessories. In 2009 a friend suggested i list my handmade jewelry for sale on Etsy.com. At the same time i saw the need for a one stop supply shop for hemp jewelry makers and Hemp Beadery was born. Six months later i was able to close the brick and mortar store i was operating and work full time on internet sales.

I love to travel, I visited  40 countries around the world ( before digital cameras and Instagram) and every year I put the shop on vacation and fly home to the UK to visit family.   My favourite place to go in the States is Moab, Utah and  around the world   Thailand, Laos,  Indonesia and Iceland.

Photography has become  a full time passion, besides  taking all the images  on the website I get outdoors as often as possible and shoot  whatever I see. If I can  help you with  product images, real estate photos or want to collaborate on some  fun outdoor shots  for Instagram get in touch.

Thanks for stopping by! Claire
