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:-

Thanks!

2017 Colour Coded campaign – Take a glance

“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.”— C. S. Lewis

Today’s post features all of the currently available pieces for the 2017 Colour Coded Campaign here on UYJ. I  have listed them in the main tab bar of the website 2017 Colour Coded, and to the right column under Menu. To the below pictures, I have added a selection of previously unsold jewelry from Christmas 2016.

Each design was made by yours truly, Natasha (or Tasha as I am usually called) and will certainly make lovely gifts or for your own pleasure.

The caption beneath each photo takes you directly to the relevant post.

For details on pricing and other information, please drop me an email at tasha76d@gmail.com or use the form provided below.

Thank you and have a lovely day!

Grandma’s Sweet boy

I have an idea how much grandmothers can dote on their grandchildren. Being a mother of one special daughter, I am well aware of the adventures, ins and outs of that bond.

This Christmas gift was done for one special boy to his Grandma.

Here’s to Grandmas, MeMes, Nanas, Abuelitas, Bibis, Grannies, MawMaws and Grand-grands everywhere!

My final stash

The next set of posts will show all the AVAILABLE pieces. Even though today is designated the final day for custom orders, any of these items can be bought as they are completed pieces.

To make it easier, a contact form is present for each of those posts. It is my first time using them. So, you can declare your interest using that form and I will contact you in return.

Here is one of my favourites made during the week: –

Also bear in mind that Old Year’s/New Year’s is approaching so there will be a few more items added next week as well!

*Remember, the next pieces will be marked AVAILABLE – Ready to be sold as is. Items will be packaged.
