Crafty jewelry: Cord for jewelry

Many people probably faced with a situation where, well, anyway, nothing to assemble jewelry! Waxed cord - a rustic, leather - rough, chain - not the color ... etc. etc. And at times, and in general - there is no cord or chain. :)) 
But we do not lose heart, and make the cord itself. Moreover, we can make almost any color and any length and thickness.

So, what do we need? 
1. Flexible Vinyl (PVC) tube of suitable diameter. Tubes can be found in different places - from shopping for children's art to the shops for radio, domestic building and zoo shops. Choose those that are well bent but not broken, plastic. The more thin-walled tubes will have, the more flexible and manageable, it will be after braiding. 
2. threads - all on your taste:) 
3. two-sided tape - sold as a business, and in needlework shops (where everything for scrapbooking). It is best to narrow, not more than 0.5 cm in width, with him more comfortable. 
4. Spoke - the thickness of her to be somewhat smaller than the inner diameter of the tube so that the needle entered the pipe without extra effort, but that there was no great backlash.

Measure out the required length of tube, for example 40-45 cm

At one end of the tube is inserted needle, so that the tip of an inch from the outside remained 2-3.

Cut the piece of tape dvustronnego. Do not take just a big piece - to him everything will stick, he will stick to everything - more hassle than fun. It is best to start taking a piece of centimeters 8-10, and then only 5 cm in 
protective paper until you shoot. Puts a tube centered on the tape directly from the edge.

Wrap duct tape and a tube, now remove the paper.

Now we can start to wrap pipe thread. Here we just spoke in handy - for which we will keep the entire structure, not to cling to the adhesive surface with your fingers. Are putting a piece of yarn the size of 0.5-0.8 cm in the opposite direction, as in the photo and start obkruchivat thread. This moment, in my opinion, the most difficult, because the needle a little scroll, nothing to grab ... but after a few turns, everything goes like clockwork.


Thanks to the spokes, not bent tube, but remains smooth and easily manageable. After a few turns, we can now take up the wrapped portion of the tube, and twirling her fingers in a clockwise direction (or negative - depending on the - top or bottom of our thread), just to make sure that the thread fell flat, and so it wound itself would . :)


When we have finished part of the tape pasted over, we glued a new piece. When Pipe wrap comes to about the middle tube, needle and pull can be rearranged to the opposite end.

Whether long story affects ... In fact, I did a lesson longer than cords:))) 
cut off the tip of the yarn, leaving a long piece of inch and a half, which is hiding inside the tube. We had a so-so cable harvesting. Since we already can do whatever we want, and use as much.

If the thread is spectacular, as here, you get quite self-sufficient ornament Good luck!
