Leather cord


#1

I have a roll or spool of leather cord that is about 6 yrs old. I
want to use the cord for necklaces, but can’t seem to get the cord
to lay straight. Does anyone have any suggestions as to do so?
Thanks in advance, Bari

Greetings, I am a new subscriber to Orchid and just learning about
some of the different forms of jewelry. However I do know about
leather and leather work. that is how I became interested in
jewelry. To answer your question: Cut a little more of the cord
(lace, strap, etc.) than you need for the project. Lay it on a flat
surface then carefully twist or force it in the opposite direction.
It might take some work and time depending on how tightly the leather
had been wound on the spool, but the leather can be straightened.

Hope this helps.
