I have decided to take up jewelry-making and here are some simple pieces I created using suede cord. The clasps are simple: looped suede and a wooden bead to hook it over, making them super easy to put on and take off.
The first one is the I Heart Sailing Necklace, for the sailing enthusiast. I have a thing for nautical themes. I used chocolate-brown suede cord and followed a simple knotting formula. The charms are of a ship's steering wheel and and amethyst-colored heart.
The second necklace features a lovely seahorse charm. In some cultures, sea horses are considered good luck. My family believes this and I grew up being enchanted by seahorses. I used pink suede cord and the same knotting formula.
The bracelet is made of pink suede cord, as well, and also created with the same knotting formula and features colorful letter charms, spelling out three words that I find very important: Live, Laugh, Love. This is my philosophy for a happy life.
