Ocean Feather Necklace

About this design:

I wanted to show how to use this Gaea bundle in a necklace. I absolutley love her boho style feathers. You could make bracelet & earring set instead.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need a Gaea Wind Dance Bundle, 6/0 seed beads, and waxed linen 4ply.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Cut two 18 inch pieces of waxed linen. Slide both ends through the feather charm then tie an overhand knot.
Step 2:
Line up your beads in the order shown. Seed beads slide onto both waxed linen strands. Then take a Gaea bead and slide one cord through the top of the bead hole and the other through the bottom of the hole. Pull tight. You will do the same process for all of the ceramic beads.
  Step 3:
Create a sliding square knot with some extra waxed linen cord and embelish your necklace ends with more seed beads. Follow the tip below to create a sliding square knot.
