This is a necklace that my mom had made, but when she went to finish the end knot, it broke apart. The cording was too small to tie a new knot, and removing beads to make the knot made the necklace too short. So, I had to restring it for her.
It’s made with one length of cord folded in half (and loped through the button), then the beads are strung on alternating cords with a jump ring in between each bead. It gives it a really neat look!
Interesting technique! It is really lovely and seems very versatile to wear with a lot of things!
cool technique, I was wondering where you got those lopsided beads!
Nice selection of colors for the beads. This necklace can go with lots of outfits.
The jump ring technique is cool. I’ve made a bracelet using it, with jump rings I got from @T.K
Not sure I fully understand the construction technique, but it looks fantastic! Nice of you to re-string it for her.
What a nifty technique! How did you finish the knot?
It is a really neat technique that looks a lot harder than it is. The beads were some of those larger seed beads (I’ve seen them labeled as size E, on occasion) that came in a mix, and the color palette was really pretty. But, the beads weren’t uniform in size, which was a pain.
@endymion, if I pick up some supplies soon, I can show you how it’s made, unless @Tanath has a link to a tutorial that she can share. I want to try it using beads that are more uniform in size.
@Magpie, I just did an overhand knot (I think that’s what it’s called) at the end of the last bead, then left a space big enough for the button to pass through, and finished it with another overhand knot. Her original necklace was on a covered cord, but they didn’t have the right size when I went to the store to get more (she got the original from a friend), so I used a waxed cording. I didn’t attempt to melt the ends, since that’s what caused it to break in the first place!
The jump rings help to make this extra special!
Its very pretty. Nice beads and design.
Thanks (on behalf of my mom, really, since I only did the restringing)! I am kind of itching to try it with different beads to see how it comes out.
