I made this necklace and i figured it out myself. If you want me to make a tutorial, tell me, and I'll try to make one Smiley

Here is a picture of me wearing it:


I was inspired by this picture, and thought I could make one myself:

The picture is from this blog: http://passionsforfashion.dk/

Please tell me what you think! Smiley


Here comes the tutorial:


You need a scissor, pearls and 8 meters of string. Cut the 8 meters in to 4 X 2 meters. Here it might be easiest to roll the strings together and fasten it with a rubber band.


Tie the four strings together with a knot


Lay the strings on your hand like this.


Put the first string over the second, and the second over the third, and the third over the fourth.


Then put the fourth string under the first, like this.


Pull each string, and it will look like this


Do it over again


Make it as long as you want to, mine is about 5 centimeters


Put a pearl on every string


like this :-)


now braid again






and pull the ends




put four more pearls on, and braid again




braid until it is as long as you want it. (It might stretch a bit when you wear it, if the pearls are a bit heavy)


now braid again, like you did in the start


tie a knot in the end


and you are finished!

Please tell me if there is something you don't understand, and I will try to explain it better. It really isn't difficult to make, when you first try it! :-)

It is lovely! Great of you to figure out how to make it. It looks like it is kind of braided, right?
