Instructions

  1. Begin by cutting a 3' length of 2mm beige pleather cord.
  2. Place a 7mm, 18 gauge antique brass plated jump ring onto each of the holes in a maple wood laser cut butterfly pendant with purple stained cut out. Thread your cord through the jump rings to hang the pendant.
  3. Make an overhand knot in the cord about 2 1/2" up from the pendant on either side. Slide a lime green Golem Studio ceramic polka dot round bead onto each side of the cord above the knots.
  4. Make an overhand knot directly after each lime green bead.
  5. Make an overhand knot in the cord about 2" up from the last knot on either side. Slide a light blue Golem Studio ceramic polka dot round bead onto each side of the cord above the last knots.
  6. Make an overhand knot directly after each light blue bead.
  7. Bring the ends of the cord around, making the necklace into a loop with the ends overlapping. Tie an overhand knot about 1 3/4" from the end of one of the cord ends, catching the other strand of cord in the middle of the knot. Repeat with the other cord end. See photo for more information on how the knots should be arranged.
  8. Pull the knots nice and tight. You can then slide the knots back and forth on the strands to adjust the length of your necklace.
