So I promised you a love child yesterday and here it is. I took what I loved from both pieces, dyed howlite spacer beads that aren’t spacing anything out and rope with gold accents. Originally I thought about adding more rows of beads but I liked the simplicity of one single piece. Here she is, a rope necklace for the ages.
It came together in a snap and is one of the easiest pieces that I have ever put together.
You will need:
- 18 inches of 3/8 inch nylon rope (I got mine at Kirkhams)
- 2 jump rings
- 2 gold end caps
- Dyed howlite spacer beads
- 2 Crimp beads
- Bead Crimper Crimp Tool Pliers or flat nose pliers
- Fishing line
First, you will want to start out by attaching your jump rings to the end caps. After that, you’ll thread the end of the fishing line through one of the crimp beads, then one of the jump rings and back through the crimp bead, pull tight. Use your bead-crimper or flat nose pliers to crimp the crimp bead and secure the fishing line in place.
String the beads on and when it’s to the length you want, add the crimp bead, then the jump ring/end cap combo and thread it back through the crimp bead. Once again, use your pliers or crimpers to secure the crimp bead. Snip off the excess fishing light and thread the end through the spacer beads to hide it. Then glue the rope into the end caps, let it dry and you are done!
Told you it was easy. Now you have a simple necklace that’s perfect for layering.
