this is my first time posting a finished project so bear with me!
i was inspired by all those chunky bead necklaces that are everywhere it seems and i really didn't wanna spend 45$ for one so i thought i;d try to make one. i used beads from wal-mart and some elastic cord.
ok so hope all the images show up and i'm sorry if the pics are crappy but i have no clue if i resized everything ok!
here is the necklace on me:
here are a few closer up views:
it was pretty easy and simple to make but i'll give ya'll the gist of it :
**first i cut 2 roughly 70" pieces of elastic cord, folded them in half and then tied an overhand knot (this made a loop for a closure) and you are left with 4 strands to string beads on
**then i started string beads on one strand and tied knots in between sections of beads, continued beading until i felt i should stop and then moved onto the next strands
**when i finished beading all the strands i took two strands and strung a big bead on the end, and then i took the other two and strung a big bead on the end as well (these are for the closure)
** and 2 hours later i had a necklace !! (it was my first beading experience and i was a little slow !)
anyways i made another single strand necklace but haven;t taken any pics yet, i wanted to see how this post turned out!
thanks for looking at my post!
