Today some of us on the Designer Crafts Connection are working with a new product that we received from Sullivans USA called Hebe Cord. This new cord comes in 31 beautiful colors and can be used for knitting, crocheting, knotting and tatting.
I received two shades of purple. Here is one of the projects that I created. It's a simple project that anyone can make. You'll love wearing these fun and trendy Fringe Earrings.
|Fringe Earrings with Hebe Cord|
To make these earrings, you'll need:
Hebe Cord, medium purple
Bullet style bead caps
22-gauge wire to match
Earring wires to match
66 2/0 E beads (I used Beader's Paradise 2/0 Czech Glass E-Beads in Lavender Mix)
Cut 32 nine-inch pieces of cord. Fold 16 in half and slide 6" length of wire through the fold. Fold wire and wrap one around the other. Trim wrapping wire and slip on bead cap. Add one bead and make a wrapped loop. Open earring wire and connect to wrapped loop. Repeat for the other earring.
Slide a bead on each strand and knot beneath the bead. Add a small dot of glue to hold knot. These earrings are about 4-1/2 inches long.
And, here's another project that I created with Hebe Cord. (I couldn't stop creating with this cord!) This bracelet is done with a French Knitter and I'll provide the details on my next post. So, here's a sneak peek!
