Introduction to Neoprene
Neoprene is a highly popular material often used by jewellers to create necklaces. Part of the synthetic rubber family, neoprene is strong and versatile and can maintain flexibility over a wide temperature range. Neoprene is also easy to clean using a dry or damp cloth. It is particularly important to maintain cleaning as perspiration can cause neoprene to become hard, losing its flexibility. The durability and flexibility of neoprene make it an attractive material in the eyes of jewellers, craft and sewing enthusiasts, and product manufacturers. Neoprene is particularly used in a variety of goods and can be used for jewellery, quilting and embroidery projects.
Neoprene, in the jewellery industry, is particularly used for necklaces although it’s great for making bracelets and has even been used for earrings. It is a comfortable material to wear and comes in a variety of colours and thicknesses. Neoprene offers a modern, contemporary touch that can be worn by both men and women. Whether you want to dress up, or are going for a casual and playful look, neoprene can be used to form jewellery to suit all occasions. Neoprene is a great material for holding a pendant or for even using on its own to create various shapes and designs.
