Suede and leather are two of my favorite jewelry cords, but I need some new ideas.
I mostly have made Chan Luu bracelets and braided jewelry.
I prefer designs with elegant beads made from metal, pearls, and semiprecious stones. I check the local stores for jewelry magazines but haven't found a good one since 2010, lol. I use 2.5-3.5mm suede and leather cords and usually use thin monofilament string for putting beads on.
Other than here on CO+K and Fire Mountain Gems, where can I find new inspiration?
I endlessly search through etsy and pinterest for new ideas, lol. etsy is good for searching because you can get really specific with the search words. If the item has pics with different angles I can usually figure out how to recreate just by looking.
Hm.. Never thought to look on Etsy. I'll have to give that a try. I pretty much never use tutorials to figure out how to make jewelry since I've been at it so long. lol
I'll probably do a few Google searches as well. I just got a giant spool of gorgeous black suede and want to do something new and interesting with it.
