Leather cord are so great supplies for jewelry making right? They could be perfect to make accessories for men or women who want something unique and cool. I really love this amazing mixed “hard” and “soft” idea, combining black leather cords with elegant white pearl beads. It’s just a thing to wrap the pearls with different sizes on the leather cord and attach the cord crimp ends. And you gotta make 3 strands and add them onto a magnetic slide lock clasp (showed below). It looks a lot fun to make this and can be a quick and ideal handmade gifts for friends. Will you have a try? 🙂
