Rattail cord is a shiny material which is smooth to touch as it is formed from satin embroidery. Rattail is a very appealing material to use when creating jewellery, there are some beautiful colours that are available to be used including turquoise, plum, coffee, royal blue and more. These striking colours work well with beads and add to the overall look of your creation. Choose 1, 2 or 3mm in thickness so you get the style you want. Check that the beads you have selected will fit through the rat tail. They will allow you to create quick yet effective accessories, the rattail allows you to simply tie together the ends once you have finished your design of bracelet, necklace etc. They are very versatile and allow you to create special pieces of jewellery such as friendship bracelets. If you fancy using them in a more craft based way you could try your hand at Chinese knot work or Macrame. Chinese knot work will allow you to use the rattail cord to turn it into jewellery or you could even use it as part of a bookmark or some other gift.
