Working with Leather Cord

After beading, leather cord became the next medium I used to create jewelry. I found I moved away from it after my interest in beads grew. I forgot that in its own way, it allows for versatility and creativity. Without even thinking about it, I realised only yesterday that some of my recent pieces have incorporated necklaces and bracelets made from leather cord.

Leather cord comes in many different colours, sizes, flat lace, rounded, and it can be used to create beautiful jewelry for men, ladies and children.

First pieces created included adjustable and wrap bracelets.

Pieces made in 2017.


These are random photos of different styles of leather for jewelry making:-

A few of my favourite things

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with strings,
These are a few of my favorite things.”

I am sure you know this song – especially if you are 40+ years of age 🙂

However, some of my favorite things include…

Lion and panther cat charms

I got the two focal sliding charms from one of my fave stores, Bead Weavers, located in Christ Church. I did not want to make the usual guy bracelet on stretch so I thought that these two components who add appeal to the bracelet and send a message that this guy is bold, different and in-charge.

Project: Get to work!

I am not one to rush a project.

I can take a while to decide what I want to do with a string of beads. So often there are just too many ideas and it is very difficult to decide on what theme, components, colour scheme, etc.

You might recall that earlier this month, I blogged on the selection of beads from the Bead Bazaar in Miami, FL.

The next series of posts shows several bracelets made from this lot, catering to both guys and gals.

Unless otherwise indicated, the pieces showcased are on sale at the prices listed.

As usual, I welcome your feedback. Leave me your comments or orders here. Or, email me at

Thank you!!
