free chemicals to impart aesthetic look of leather - hence these
are often known as leather look.

Summary - Jewelry cords are the structural component
that necklaces and bracelets are comprised of. There are
numerous types available. Below is a cord primer to get you in
the right direction.
Waxed cotton cord is the number one cord for
necklaces. Waxed cord is a tubular braid of cotton, silk or
hemp. The material is run through a waxer used for coating
candle wick (There are other variations on how to wax a cord,
but the best method is with a candle wick waxer). A 140 degree
(or higher melt point) general purpose wax is melted in a tank
whereby the braided cord is pulled through successively smaller
diameter brass die that impregnates the wax into the cord. Cord
color dye is added to the wax during the waxing process. This is
why you have a multitude of vibrant colors available. See
Panda Hall for more information.
Wire Jewelry Cord - Next in popularity is wire
based jewelry cord that provides strenght and form to necklaces.

Stretchy Beading Cord - Technically an elastic
polymer such as the very popular "Bead
and Stretch" made by Toner and available at WalMart. This is
our favorite brand. Consistent quality control. Diameters that
match what is on the label !!
Hemp Cord - There is also hemp cord (See
Traders) that may also be braided into necklaces and
bracelets. Hemp may be braided and waxed. It is a
versatile material that is great for earth tone type jewelry.
Paracord - This cord is versatile. Both
utilitarian and as jewelry cording. Makes great
barcelets. A variation of this cording is used to make
parachutes. Multicolored, strong and weaveable makes this the
cord of choice for bracelets. We suggest you search the
Chinese manufacturing and trading portal

Gimp ( See GimpLace.com
for definitions) that is thin strips of extruded plastic that is
popular for lanyards and bracelets. The best brand, in our
opinion is Toner Crafts Craftlace. Available online Toner Crafts
and sold in Walmarts. Product has great consistancy, flexibility
and vibrant coloring.
Chinese knotting - A decorative handicraft art
that began as a form of Chinese folk art in the Tang and Song
Dynasty (960-1279 AD) in China. It was later popularized in the
Ming). The art is also referred to as "Chinese traditional
decorative knots". Note some of the designs would easily
accomodate the use of Paracord !!
