These bright silk cords are perfect for creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry, or simply as a cord to show off a pendant. (See example in 5th photo--sample idea only, beads not included.) The difference between my silk cord and others available, which are usually dyed in a single color, is that the color on each of my cords is variegated along the length of the cord. This creates a unique piece of art, especially when used in jewelry.
I have painted them in a vivid ombre of aquamarine, turquoise, blue, and blue-purple colors using fiber reactive dyes, then steam set them for permanency. The cords are then washed to remove excess dye. They are hand washable using a mild soap, then air dried. The cords vary from 36" to 42" in length and may vary slightly in thickness, usually 1/16" to 1/8". They are constructed of satiny silk paj fabric.
The cords are sold in sets of 6--my choice--that were dyed using similar colors. Remember, colors you view on your computer may vary slightly from the actual colors. As with all hand made items, there may be slight imperfections in fabric or dyes, but that is what makes each piece unique.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.

The colors may not be exact due to lighting, monitor variation, etc. I do my best to make the photos representational, but some variations may occur. Therefore, this would not be considered a valid reason for refund.
Remember, too, this is a one-of-a-kind hand painted item, so variations and imperfections may occur in the design. It’s all part of the creative process and what makes each piece unique.
