Learn how to make your own 2-ply, 3-ply, and 4-ply twisted cord, plus get inspired by the 3 DIY projects included with step by step instructions. The manuals include cord making terms, a comparison of available cord making tools, how to make your own set of tools, tips for cord making, measurements, colors, plus a table with cord diameters made with C-Lon Bead Cord. That's my standard for making cords. The full manual is 34 page long and has 67 photos, tables and charts. Three DIY projects are included with step by step instructions:
Project 1 - Adjustable Cords for Bracelets and Necklace
Project 2 - Necklace Cords with Clasps
Project 3 - Single and Double Cable Bracelets
The Cord Making Tool Set includes: 1 drill attachement with a hook, 1 wood bar with a hook plus a 2 inch C-clamp, 1 wood bar with 4 hooks, 2 mini-bungie cords, 4 regular and 4 jumbo paperclips, and access to the PDF instructions.
The PDF Manual available by itself HERE includes instructions on how to make your own tool set.
For Project 1, you will need C-Lon Bead Cord in 1 or more colors), a reversible cordless drill, scissors, heavy duty shears or micro-tip snips, and Poly Zap Super Glue.
For Project 2, add to above list, 2 mini-clamps, sterling silver clasps such as the FSS-2mm, FSS-3mm and FSS-4mm available HERE. Zap Gel is an optional adhesive for this project.
For Project 3, add to Project 1 list, Fray Block, Isopropyl Alcohol, Devcon 5-Minutes Epoxy, 5mm Dot Clasps and Sliders, Crystal End Clasps, and 2-3 mini-clamps or more depending on how many clasp you want to glue in at once. An awl, T-pins, and pliers are also good tools to have on hand.
The cord making instructions just got a total makeover as of April 2018 with 3 projects, plus new techniques. Enjoy!
