The latest cording that I had received was from the Deep Water Challenge that Andrew Thornton had put on.
I did not get the chance to use the cording for that challenge but I decided to make a pair of earrings using the cording and beads that I had left over. I used a rondele bead and a round bead in similar colors and knotted the ends of the cord and added a loop at the center of the cording and added that to the ear wire.
The next item I found to make was an earring kit that included all the necessary material. As I was making the earrings I realized that I did not have enough spacers to add to the dangles. Spacers that I did have, I thought were too big compared to the original spacers.
Original spacers are the three mid-left of the picture. Others that are similar in shape are the four silver to the upper right and the four gold to the lower right of the picture. A similar size but different shape are the three gold rounds in the lower left. Will have to make up my mind about which one to use. Which do you recommend?
Here are the earrings waiting to be finished.
I loved working with the linen cording and can see myself making other earrings with it and possibly making some necklaces as others have done.
