Back in Stock! The original manufacturer closed, and satiny rattail cording has been unavailable for a few years. We'd almost given up and we're very excited that it's back!
Rattail Satin-Like Cord for Necklaces
Single-strand necklaces are normally finished with fold-over crimps.
Multistrand necklaces are normally finished with cones or bullet ends (to hide knots).
This shiny cording is popular for handmade ceramic pendants, and slumped and fused art glass, using glue-on bails.
This cord can snag if a jump ring or split ring slides back and forth across it, so instead, use good quality bails that don't have sharp spots. (Aanraku, TierraCast, JBB and our other cast jewelry bails work well.)

1mm rattail cording (petite weight). A slick satin-like rayon cording encases a cotton core. Ideal for necklaces. If adding beads, create a needle by adding a drop of glue and then rolling the tip to a point. This product is not colorfast. Made in the USA. This smaller (petite) size is sometimes called bugtail, and is also known as size #0.
