Slentre is a form of braided cord.

A series of loops held in the fingers of both hands are passed from hand to hand and moved from finger to finger to create a flat or round braid. It is awkward though not impossible to create long lengths of this braid as the tension is controlled by the weavers arms being fully stretched out to the side. This method can be used with silver wire for jewellery or as high status clothing embellishment.
