I came across this idea online to make a necklace with some strings. It works with the same technique as a normal friendship bracelet and is easy to make.
This is what you’ll need:
- Different colours of thread
- A clasp
- 2 jump rings
- A chain
Cut your threads to about 20 cm. I used 12 strings, but I recommend using more so It will become thicker. Make sure the threads at the left side are mirrored to the right side.
Tape down your threads. It will be smart to use a clasp or something to hold on to the threads even better.
Start by making a four with your left outer string.
Put the string through the opening.
Do this twice with each string until you reach your middle.
Take the right outer string and make a reverse four.
Put the string through and pull! Repeat twice at every string until you reach the middle.
Tie a knot with the middle two strings. Repeat these steps until you like the length of your work.
Add some glue to the strings to prevent the knots from unraveling
Cut off all the extra threads.
Take a jump ring and open it.
Push it through the threads and add the chain. Close the jump ring.
Cut off the chain to the length you like it and secure with a jump ring on the other side.
