What Does "Hand Rolled" Leather Cord Mean?
I have seen jewelry made with pearls strung on leather cords. In the descriptions it always says that the pearls are strung on "hand rolled leather".
Does anyone know what this means and if so where I can buy this type of leather cord? And how would I hand roll it?

Not to worry, you don't need to hand roll the leather cord yourself.
That's just what it's called. That's how they describe cord that is "round" (think like a piece of wire" rather than flat or cut in strips like a piece of rawhide cord.
If you look for for Greek leather, or leather cord you should be fine.
You can get some here at Artbeads. The "mm" means the diameter. 1.5 mm and 2 mm are standard sizes. You might want to order some of both to see what the difference is.
If you click through the link, you can also see what sizes and colors are available.
