Skystone and Pearl Lariat

About this design:

I LOVE pearls and turquois together, and when the local beadshop got in these large hole pearls, I had to have them! This is my first attempt at knotting. I couldn't pull the knots very tight, or the leather cord would break! I guess it's one of the risks when using 1mm cord.


White large hole pearls, turquois rounds, textured silver plated coins, leather cord.

    the knots are great– with leather you just have to adapt. This is fabulous, dahlink!
