Not sure anyone of the
I went on a Women's Retreat a couple weekends ago, and on the way 10 of us stopped for some girl time, which included shopping and lunch. As we were shopping, I saw these (pictured below) in an unnamed (cough Old Navy) store that tickled my fancy and made me say "I CAN MAKE THAT!"
Materials needed:Hemp (it looks like twine, found in the beading section of your local craft store, usually in a basket on the bottom shelf)
1 Pendant - choose a large stone or pre-made fancy that makes you happy and matches your wardrobe
6 large-ish glass or wooded beads, preferably that matches your Pendant
Optional: A clasp in whatever type of metal you like. Make sure you know how to fasten it to your hemp
Directions:Step 1: Cut 3 lengths of hemp each about 4 feet long
Step 2: String your pendant to the center and tie an overhand knot with all 6 strands (looks like the bottom of the picture
Step 3: With 3 strands, tie another overhand knot about 1-2 inches above the pendant knot, repeat with remaining 3 strands
Step 4: On one side, string one bead on ONE strand, leaving the other 2 strands beside the bead, tie another overhand knot above the bead, repeat on the other side.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 with remaining beads (two on each side)
Finish necklace and TADA You CAN MAKE THAT!
Time: It took me about 15 minutes to make this necklace
Cost: Free for me, because I already had all of those materials, if you have to buy it all it could cost between $10 and $20 for the materials. Or you can buy it at Old Navy for $12 :)
