Style Snapshot: Cord, Cord and More Cord
Cord of all colors, materials and sizes is a fresh trend in fashion. Leather, nylon, satin and cotton are just a few cord options a designer has to choose from. The numerous material options combined with myriad of color options create endless design opportunities. And unlike other stringing materials that are normally hidden, cord can stand alone as a design element. Here are a few designs to get your ideas flowing.
Cord is beautifully simple, yet extraordinarily versatile.
Design Idea E724 is a perfect example of the adaptable nature of cord jewelry; an elegant belt made simply of nylon cord, chain and Swarovski chatons.
Macramé waxed cotton cord worked into square knots is the main ingredient for this delightful bracelet. Bisque ceramic beads provide a great contrast of color and texture to the cord.
Another useful benefit of cord is that it works well for women's and men's jewelry. This simple design features black and grey leather cord, and is finished off with a unique charm. And, it could easily be converted into a more feminine design by switching the charm with something a little happier.
The neon trend is still just as hot as the colors themselves. This design combines woven cotton cord with bright neon beads. Antiqued sterling silver charms add even more fun to this lighthearted, youthful bracelet.
