Project Instructions

Step 1 String one 3x8mm brass rhinestone rondelle and one 15x20mm silver-plated textured rondelle onto the leather cord. Repeat four more times. String one 3x8mm brass rhinestone rondelle.

Step 2 Hold the two ends of the cord together and slide these beads to the center of the cord so that the center large bead is at the center of the cord.

Step 3 Make an overhand knot in the cord before the first rhinestone rondelle and after the last rhinestone rondelle.

Step 4 String one 14mm silver gourd round onto one tail. Make an overhand knot. Repeat two more times on this side.

Step 5 Repeat Step 4 on the other side of the necklace.

Step 6 String one 8x15mm embellished silver rectangle. Make an overhand knot. Repeat on other side of necklace.

Step 7 Make a sliding knot with each end of the necklace.


Don’t pull the first two knots too tightly after stringing the center beads. If there is not enough slack in the cord, the necklace will not bend gracefully at the center.
