GEMSTONE VEINS

 

GEMSTONE VEINS

 

Gemstone Veins was inspired by a vein of sparkling gemstones we saw being mined on a recent visit to Tanzania. To achieve the sparkle we used a few strands of our metallic tassel cord and paired it with our thinner 0.5mm Chinese knotting cord and a single gemstone. This tutorial gives us a few tips on how to work with metallic cord and finish off metallic cord ends without the need for glue.
