Hi everyone!
I really like Mandy Moore's necklace in the movie 'How To Deal' and I wanted to make one for myself.
It looks fairly simple but I was hoping I could get some other opinions on how to make it. Here's two pictures.





Thanks!

Well by what I see it just looks like a higher quality yarn/chord/string that's got two meduim sized beads that have been tied to the ends. The necklace is probably just a long string she's wrapped around her neck twice and then tied. The beads look like mah jong pieces almost, so if you wanted that look you could go into a craft store and I know many of them have got similar beads.

I hope this helps a little if any!

                                                       ^ measure string to fit your neck.

I think that's really all it is.... Good luck with it!

i was thinking that the 'string' is actually small seed beads.  It would be more durable that way.  just a thought.  Smiley

I think it is seed breads on beading string. Or flexible wire.
I'm pretty shure those are called lariots.  I love them , very versital, lots of ways to wear them. Necklase, cohoker, bracelt.

[It looks like a thin crochet chain to me with the two long beads on the end. A colored cotton cord crochet in a chain.  It could be done in any color/i]

have you ever tried to tie a sead bead necklace?Huh not smart, seriously.  just for that fact alone i believe it to be leather.  sure the beads would look cool, but the minute you tie them, you're never getting that sucker off.

leather cord becomes wiggly like that after lots of use, and tying it in different sopts, i think that is why it appears to be seed beads to you. 

i would use leather . . . well actually i have made these before, and the leather cord was perfect.
