I wish you had gone slower in showing the slides from Alex and Lee. How can we pick apart each design when there are multiples designs on each slide and you show it for just a few seconds. I am hoping I can stop the video and really look at each piece for ideas. Thanks for sharing ideas and tips with us. Karen Williams April 6, 2022 at 3:26 am Robyn mentioned a hand cranked knitting spool to create cord from yarn. I thought I would link to the more manual way to create this with knitting needles. This is more flexible in diameter of the cord and also in variety of yarns you can use. https://youtu.be/dfkFRa9tjns Phyllis Straus April 9, 2022 at 9:05 am Robyn…Thank you so much for sharing the “Eight-strand Asymmetrical Flat Braid” handout above. I look forward to making this lovely necklace. Phyllis Straus April 14, 2022 at 10:03 am Robyn. Thanks for all the creative inspiration your class provided. I have gathered my ‘sample’ braids for both necklace and bracelet creations. I tend to only put like colors together and would like suggestion on mixing color groups and patterns into one piece of jewelry. That’s something that I get stuck on. I am attaching a photo of some of the braids pieces I gathered. Wonder if I should shop for some ready made cords to include with my braids. Thanks.

They would be beautiful incorporated into corded necklaces in the Alex and Lee-style. Phyllis Straus April 30, 2022 at 7:17 pm Tina, I love this idea. Another item to check for in the thrift stores.
