Craft Cord Corral: Bead Stringing Projects for Everyone by Janice S. Ackerman features new and innovative bead stringing projects that utilize craft cord, the braided material often used for stitching on plastic canvas, and a variety of large-hole beads, are presented in this exciting new book. 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. It can easily be mastered by beginners, 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 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 materials used, to create entirely different effects, and once the techniques are learned they can be used to create new and original designs.
Some of the projects you will find in Craft Cord Corral: Bead Stringing Projects for Everyone 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 see results of which they can be proud!
