bead knot layered necklace

Craft a sophisticated necklace for that special event with these round lentil shell beads. Then add layers of chain and a personalized Swarovski™ charm set to complete this Bead Knot Layered Necklace.
Step 1

Unravel the silk cord from the card.

Step 2

Tie the end to a 4mm jump ring and add a dab of glue to the knot. Let dry and trim excess cord.

Step 3

Use the attached needle to add about 14 shell beads and the knotter tool to add knots in between each bead.
TIP: Click here for a video to help teach you how to use the knotter tool.

Step 4

After the 14th bead, tie on a 4mm jump ring and trim from the cord length.
TIP: Wrap the excess cord with the needle attached back onto its card.

Step 5

Remove two sets of two links from the Figaro chain. Use the jump rings on each end of the beaded shell cord to attach a two-link piece to each end. Set aside.

Step 6

Remove a 16" [40.6 cm] section from the Figaro chain. Add a 4mm jump ring to each end. Set aside.

Step 7

Cut one beaded chain down to 16" [40.6 cm]. Add the rectangular tag charm to the chain, then a 4mm jump ring to each end of the chain. Set aside.

Step 8

Cut one beaded chain down to 17" [43.2 cm]. Add the circle charm to the chain, then a 4mm jump ring to each end of the chain.

Step 9

To assemble the necklace, open a 6mm jump ring and add the 4mm jump ring from one end of each layer and close the jump ring.

Step 10

Finally, open a 6mm jump rig, add a clasp as well as the 4mm jump ring on the other end of each layer; then close the jump ring.
