The Orange Blossom Agate & Selenite rounds took me to a tropical place when I looked at them together. The soft palette of white and orange-pink hues really complement each other. The Selenite pendant ties this design all together.

Supplies you’ll need:

You will need a Selenite pendant, Orange Blossom Agate rounds, a half strand of Selenite rounds, a half strand of Quartz multi rounds (I listed a few other matte 6mm round possibilities in the product list), 8 faceted antique silver rounds, 1 nautilus bead, 1 patina fish charm, 2 anitue silver nuggets, 3 light rose saucers, and 4ply waxed cord.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Take the bail off of the Selenite pendant. Cut an extra long piece of waxed cord, I used around 20". Loop the cord through the pendant loop and up through the light rose saucers and also through the nautilus bead. Tie a double overhand knot. Create a knot on each side of the middle knot.

Step

Step 2

Begin stringing on your beads on one side in the order shown. Knot in between each bead. Repeat on the other side.
TIP - If you pull your next bead against the knot, it will secure the knot in place. You can also use a needle to pull the loop tightly down to the bead.

Step

Step 3

Don't trim any cord yet. You need to create a sliding square knot. Follow the tip below to learn how. Once you are done with your sliding knot; you can add your fish charm and nugget beads on to embellish you cord end tails.
