Craft Cord Corral: Bead Stringing Projects for Everyoneby Janice S. Ackerman, Denise Knight (Editor)
New and innovative bead stringing projects that utilize craft cord and a variety of large-hole beads, are presented in this exciting new book. Craft cord is the braided material often used for stitching on plastic canvas. When these projects are embellished with conchos, feathers and other finery, they represent an entirely new look in jewelry and home decorative items.
The Craft Cord Corral concept uses readily available materials and basic craft techniques. Beginners can easily master this concept, yet the complexity of the designs and professional-looking results make it attractive to more experienced crafters as well. The complete step-by-step directions are easy to follow and each project is well illustrated with clear, concise drawings. There is a "hints" section and an illustrated knotting guide at the beginning of the book. Substitutions can be made in the suggested materials to create entirely different effects. For instance, colored leather thong can be used in place of craft cord; also, using different types or colors of beads can change the entire look of a pattern. Once the techniques presented in this book are learned they can be used to create new and original designs. Projects included are the Thunderbird Choker Necklace, Flower Necklace and Earring Set, Dream Catcher Necklace, Halloween Cat Necklace, Pumpkin Bell Necklace, Christmas Tree Necklace and Earring Set, Red & White Necklace and Earring Set, Eye Glass Chain, White and Gold Belt, Butterfly Waist Cincher, Concho Belt and Earring Set, Southwest Key Chain, Heart Concho Key Chain and Dream Catcher. Everyone, be they young or old, beginner or seasoned veteran, will have fun making these projects and will seeresults of which they can be proud!
