I made this neckace months ago, but couldn’t post it since I made it for someone who reads this blog frequently for Christmas…well, here it is. It’s fairly easy to do, but it took me about 2-3 Gilmore Girls episodes until I had threaded all the beads. (Don’t ask how many – I didn’t count!)
I used three different colours of tube beads in random order.
I basically made two strings (each consisting of eight single strings) and knotted them together using the Double Carrick Bend and twisted the ends.
For the fastener I made a loop out of rocaille beads and used a bigger square-shaped bead on the other end. I used crimp beads to seal the end.
One string is a little longer than the other – thus the necklace/knot is slightly asymmetric which makes it look more interesting.
Have fun – oh, and Happy New Year! 🙂
