A tinge of fringe is an easy way to add texture and unique style to your look. Inspired by vintage macrame and tribal jewelry, I designed an easy-to-make statement necklace that injects intriguing and playful charm into your wardrobe. Inexpensive to recreate and completely customizable, this project can be altered and adjusted to fit your own taste. Explore this look with a variety of colors, textures, and knotting for your next DIY night. Check out the tutorial and another version of this necklace after the page break.
What you’ll need:
-Large Wood Beads
-Cording (cut with a 2ft length)
-A Clasp and Ring
1-2. Add a clasp to the cording and thread three wooden beads. An easy way to attach and knot the clasp can be found here. Tie a string of cord onto the necklace. The knot should be in the center of the string, dividing the string in half.
3. Add more stings and make sure the knots are all the same.
4-5. Grab three of the strings that are on the necklace. Tie a knot with the left and right around the middle sting.
6. Alternate knots (left over right, right over left). Repeat a few times until an inch before desired length.
7. Group two sets of knots together by pairing strings into three sets.
8. Make one knot like in Steps 4-5.
9. Finish by knotting each original string.
