How to Finish Cord and Leather Handmade Jewelry With Cord Closures Tutorial

Cord closures are used to attach cording to clasps and other components.  You can use it to group together multiple strands of cord, round leather cord or flat cord, like that in the tutorial.  They are very simple to use.

Here is a picture of a small cord closure I got from Michael's.  It is really small and can hold 1 piece of cord.  They make bigger ones, if you need to fit multiple or bigger strands.

  2. There's no need to put down a considerable amount of cash if you don't want to. There are plenty of affordable brands that carry pieces that can pass for the real thing. https://www.gildedjewellery.co.uk

  3. A glance up close will reveal gorgeous design and detail. I love the inclusion of a few gemstones to sparkle and catch the light. Wear your hair up or half up to allow these earrings to shine. Bikerringshop's earrings collection
