Peacock Pearl Necklace

PROJECT N2269
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
A classic strand of knotted pearls is a wardrobe staple. These beautiful iridescent pearls give a little extra elegance to any outfit.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18.5 inches. For a longer or shorter necklace simply adjust the number of pearls strung. Please note for a longer necklace you will need to purchase an additional strand of pearls.
  1. Begin by threading the griffin silk up and over the thread protector leaving a tail of about 2 inches. Slide on one closed jump ring and then tie a double overhand knot as close as you can to the base of the thread protector. Add a dab of GS Hypo cement to the knot. Trim the short tail and add a crimp cover.
  2. Next you will begin the pearl knotting as seen in our video: How to Do Pearl Knotting Using Tweezers. For this design, I recommend a double knot in between each pearl for added bulk.
  3. Finally, finish the other side the same as the beginning. This time sliding on one lobster clasp before completing the knot.
