Starting with advice on the leather cords to use and the essential techniques you need to start designing your pieces, you can then delve straight into the brilliant variety of braiding projects - from rings and neckwear to key fobs and wrist straps for watches.Few specialist tools are required and the leather cord is readily available from craft stores. All of the projects use classic three-string or four-string braid designs, and the addition of decorative knots or store-bought findings give the braids a professional, elegant finish - making these perfect pieces for beginners to make for family and friends.
