question for people work with jewelry, I've got a necklace I adore but I've had it since high school it, if not earlier and the court is falling apart.
What would be the right search term for a new cord kind of like this? Are there any brands that I should be using, or is it just kind of interchangeable?
@starkatt When you get back, do you have recommendations? I've bought supplies based on your recommendations before and damn do they always work well
@Canageek You could go to Dressew on Hastings and have a look at their cord section — it's extensive and in person has the added benefit of being able to try to find a close match. (Inexpensive, too. You're probably looking at less than $2.)
@Canageek I hope Kelowna is treating you well, then!
What you're looking for is jewelry cording, and most craft stores should have it. The one you have looks like nylon over a cotton or nylon center, but there's a whole lot of different types. If you go to Michael's or a bead shop, they'll probably have nylon, hemp, cotton or linen, and leather.
