Pipa Knot Pendant

About this design:

I loved the look of this braided teardrop, it can be used as a pendant but also looks great as a bracelet.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 3mm microsuede and the best tool of all, your hands! Actually, I did use a bit of tape to hold my loop.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Create a loop, then take your right leg of microsuede and create a teardrop shape then loop it behind the top loop.
Step 2:
Do this same process until the braid is almost to the center of the teardrop.
Step 3:
Step 4:
When finished braiding take the leg of microsuede you have been using and feed it down through the center.
Step 5:
Then take the right microsuede leg and bring it around the back and down through the center.
Step 6:
Finito! You can add glue on cord end embellishments or large hole beads at the ends of the microsuede.
