18 inch black satin necklace cord handcrafted


Black satin 18 inch (45.5cm) 1.5mm wide necklace cord with lobster claw clasp. Choose a silver plated, gold plated or copper plated clasp. Clasps are approximately 7mm wide so that pendants with bails large enough to fit over that will work on these cords.

* This listing is for a 18 inch necklace cord *

Choose from silver plated, gold plated or copper plated clasp by leaving me a note in the "Message to Seller" at checkout. If nothing is noted you will receive the silver plated clasp.

I have to admit to being frustrated with commercial choices in necklace cords. Not only is it nearly impossible to find any over 20 inches long to use for displaying pretty gemstone donuts as pendants, but so many also have sliding knot ends that come untied or crimp ends that pull off. I wanted simple, affordable satin necklace cords with easy lobster claw clasps in different metals to display pendants.

This satin cord is 1.5mm wide. It is slimmer than the standard 2mm cord so that it doesn't overpower your pendants. I personally heat seal each cord end, loop it over and sew it down securely with heavy duty quilting thread. Then I cover the ends with hand-wound coils of wire to match the clasps and bend the coil ends into the satin to anchor them. Sure, it's labor intensive, but it gives you the perfect custom cord that is handmade in the USA--just how you like it. Clasps may vary slightly from ones shown due to current availability.

Please note: My mannequin in the photos has a large 16 inch neck. Necklace cords will fit differently on someone with a smaller neck. I make these in any length from a 14 inch choker to a 26 inches for the same price.

If ordering to use with a gemstone donut, you will want to order one that is approximately 2 inches longer as some of the cord will wrap the donut.

PLEASE NOTE: All items come with your choice of a sheer organza pouch or silver foil box. Please let me know your preference in "Message to Seller" at checkout. If nothing is noted the pouch will be sent. Gift wrap with a ribbon and card can also be arranged at no extra charge if you let me know you need it.

Welcome to Sue Runyon Designs. I specialize in quality, hand-crafted jewelry designs in freshwater pearls and gemstone beads with professional, classic stringing.

If you are purchasing items as gifts to be sent to different addresses and/or you need gift wrap and cards with gift messages, I'm happy to help out with that free of charge. Just send me an e-mail with all the details. I like helping with surprises! Don't wait too long though. My turn around time can be pretty fast.

I have my own webstore. If you see any items there that you would like me to make an Artfire listing for, let me know. http://www.suerunyondesigns.com


More info on my wholesale policies:



For your safety and convenience I prefer PayPal payments. With PayPal I will never see any of your credit or bank card information. You may use PayPal even if you do not have a PayPal account. You may pay immediately from Artfire checkout, or if you have some custom changes, need a faster shipping method, have requested shipping insurance or have multiple shipping destinations, I can send you an adjusted invoice via e-mail.

If not paying immediately by PayPal, please contact me with payment details. I reserve the right to cancel your order due to lack of communication or timely payment.


For international shipments buyers are responsible for all custom fees, duties and taxes associated with their home country. All customs forms will be marked as merchandise. There are no exceptions.

Certain countries such as Italy and Poland prohibit importation of jewelry. I cannot ship to those countries. If you live in a country such as the UK or Spain where jewelry imports are restricted and require additional expensive postage, you will have to pay the difference before I will ship your order. I will pay up to $2 over the actual shipping cost. Anything more is up to the buyer to pay.

If your Artfire and PayPal addresses differ or if your order is a gift order to be sent to a secondary address, please let me know as soon as possible where to send your item(s). My turn around time can be pretty fast.

Listed items are in stock (except for custom orders) and ready to send as soon after payment is confirmed as possible--often by the next business day. Feel free to contact me about specific shipping dates.

For US Shipping:

I ship by USPS First Class mail which runs 3+ days for delivery. If you need a faster delivery method, please contact me. For small items I package them in a secure padded mailer. All others are securely wrapped and boxed.

An upgrade to USPS Priority shipping (2-3 days) is a flat rate of $5.75 regardless of number of items.


If you are not satisfied with your order for any reason, return within 30 days from date of purchase for a full refund of the price of the item or an exchange if you prefer. Refunds for custom orders will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Items must be returned in original, new condition. Shipping and handling charges are not refundable except in the event that I sent you a defective or incorrect item. It is best to insure your return as I cannot be responsible for lost or misdirected items. Obtain return authorization by phone or e-mail before sending so I know to expect your return. Use conscientious packing procedure. Enclose the packing slip or your contact information so the refund is properly credited to you. Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have a question. Your satisfaction is very important to me.

If you have had an item break, I will do repairs if possible. If the 30 day return period is up, I will determine if there is a charge depending on circumstances and you must pay postage both ways. I work hard to make jewelry that is meant to last.

I work with natural materials which may have inherent flaws. I do my best to describe and photograph items accurately.

I use classic stringing techniques. Stringing materials will stretch over time. Therefore, I knot everything just a little "tight." After a few uses items will relax and hang beautifully.

All items come packaged in plastic zip bags. If the item has silver components, store the item in the bag to help keep it from tarnishing. Also, remember to never spray pearls with perfumes or personal care products!

My designs are hand-crafted and packaged in my smoke and pet free studio.

I do CUSTOM work. Do you see something on my website you like, but want a little change? Different clasp, length, color, matching bracelet? I'm happy to accommodate if I can.
