Having received some beautiful hand-dyed leather cord recently, I decided the time couldn't be better to make one and the verdict on my Facebook page was to do a double wrap!
Here is the result .... I used a mother of pearl button for the 'clasp', czech fire-polished beads in blues and rich teals, and some sweet wee silver flower beads. Following a completely random colour pattern the only constant was the placing of silver bead every 7 glass beads.
These really are such fun to make, and while I made mine up as I went along, I've found a great tutorial here if you want to give it a whirl yourself.
If you're not a jewellery maker with a big stash of beads to chose from you can find all of the things to make these from an 'Emporium' style of shop, and definately somewhere like Spotlight (NZ and Aus). Don't be afraid to substitute leather cord for satin rattail or cotton cord - whatever you choose will make it even more personal to you!
