What you'll need?
1. A batch of charms (any of your preference) gold, silver, copper, any metal finish you want.
2. Cord in the color of your preference.
3. Some lobster clasps
4. Jumprings (any size you want, but not too little)
5. Jewelry cutters, or scissors.
6. Small random beads (could be seed beads like the ones I used).
Step 1: Cut the cord in the length that you feel comfortable with, but make sure to let sufficient cord to knot it to the clasp at the end.
Step 2: Choose the charm you're going to work with; and introduce both ends of the cord through the little charm hole.
Step 3: Pull the cord almost out at the other end (but not out), so you have left a comfortable loop to enter both ends of the cord (the ends that you actually get through the charm hole). Once they are inside the loop, pull the cord to make a small knot that you should take to the beginning of the charm (see both pictures).
Step 4: Take one of the small seed bead and introduce both ends of the cord through it. Take the bead to the beginning of the charm (just above the knot you did with the loop).
Step 5: Decide the length of your necklace and tie closure at one of the ends of the necklace. Make sure to do more than one knot (maybe 3), and make them strong enough. At the other end, tie the jumpring (again, make sure to do strong knots). Then cut the excess of cord that would left at both ends of the cords. Your ends should look like the ones in the picture below.
And you're DONE!!!!
This should be your final result:
- Make more than one necklace, in different colors and different lengths and with different charms (you can even mix silver and gold), for mixing and matching. They look really great alone or all together. Perfect for jewelry layering.
- Add more than one seed bead, or use different colors for different necklaces.
- Have fun!!!!
