Wax Cotton Jewelry Cord (Round)
Round wax cords or polished cords are cotton braided cords with round or oval cross sections. Various strands of cotton yarn of different counts in sheath and core are braided together (either in single head or double braid) to give them the lateral stability. Braided cords are then processed in AZO free chemicals to impart aesthetic look of leather - hence these are often known as leather look.

Flat wax cords or polished cords have very similar construction to that of round wax cords besides that it has odd spindle braiding of

Jewelry Cord 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. See Toner Crafts Fun Wire for more information

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 Hemp 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 ALIBABA for the best deals.

Plastic Craft Lacing - And of course there is Gimp ( See 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 !! Read More
