This boho-style necklace catches daydreams and everyones eyes! The natural texture of the rattan focal adds an earthy vibe that pairs so well with the rustic African brass and Czech glass teardrops. You will have extra beads left to make some earrings, woohoo!

Supplies you’ll need:

  • 1 rattan focal
  • Linhasita cord 1mm
  • 7 African brass rice
  • 5 African brass sun beads
  • Czech glass teardrops
  • 2mm or 1.5mm leather cord
  • Czech glass bicones
  • patina spacer beads

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Cut five 4" piece of Linhasita cord. Create a knot at the end of each one. Slide the beads on in the order shown. Start by tying the longest piece to shortest onto the middle of the rattan focal. Check out the image for how to knot.

Step

Step 2

Your beaded strands should be hanging in a graduated form.

Step

Step 3

Cut a 7" piece of Linhasita cord and tie it on next to the shortest bead strand. Trim one end of the cord and us a lighter to burn the knot. Start wrapping the tail of cord around the rattan in between the bead strands to fill in any spaces. Knot the cord when finished and burn the knot with a lighter to seal the knot.

Step

Step 4

Cut 29-30" of leather cord. Fold and feet the folded end through the rattan, pull the two leather cord tails through the folded cord. Take one tail and wrap it around the other and pull up through as shown.

Step

Step 5

Tie on 6" of Linhasita cord just above the knot. Trim one end and leave a longer piece of cord to wrap. Wrap around the leather cord as much as you want and tie a knot. Use a lighter to burn and seal your knots. Slide one African brass rice bead on above the wrapped cord.

Step

Step 6

To finish cut an 8" piece of Linhasita and tie it on over both of your leather cord tails. Follow the images below or click the tip for guidance on creating a sliding square knot. Make your knot as long as you like, knot it off and burn the knots to secure them. Tie knots on the end of your leather cord so they don't pull through the square knot.
