Three Black and Gold Ornaments

I made these three ornaments as gifts.  You may recognize the cloud filling stitch (TAST #78).  I stitched on 28 count black fabric with gold accentuate, adding gold beads in the middle of each cloud.  The back of the ornament is black damask fabric.  I made cording with four strands of black perle cotton #8 and one strand of DMC gold.

Lovely ornaments, and a great use for the Cloud Filling Stitch. How did you make the braids?

It's a twisted cording. I had two strands of black folded in half on one side and two strands of black and one gold folded in half on the other. I attach one end to the wall and use a pencil to twist the other end. I only used gold on one side so it would give a sparkle without a full line of gold.
