Lanyard

Since my husband started making slings we tend to have some smaller pieces of para-cord lying around.

so it should be here tomorrow.!

Until I get them I can’t make the earrings I wanted to. (both for myself and for gifts) but I can provide a link to my favorite part of their website. Their gallary of designs

Where oh where

I came across a pair of earrings that I absolutely adore, but only the picture and no link for purchase or instructions to make them.
