For these necklaces, I mixed a variety of Rattan pieces with gemstones, tassels, bead chain, and leather to create unique focals.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Rattan Focals
  • Wire
  • Chain
  • Leather Cord
  • Your favorite gemstones & tassels

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

I used wire to attach the beads to the Rattan Focals- See step 1 of my Rattan Earrings design. Once you've attached your beads to the rattan, use jump rings to attach your chosen chain. To attach the tassel, I wrapped a piece of wire through the jump ring on the tassel & around the focal a couple of times.

Step

Step 2

For these styles, I simply knotted leather cord around the top of the focal. For the necklace on the left, I slid seed beads onto the cord & knotted to keep them in place. For the necklace on the right, I slid a crystal point focal onto the leather cord before knotting it around the rattan. You could also use a jump ring to attach after you've attached the leather.
