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.
