Retired - Celtic Knot Necklace

PROJECT N113
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Beginner
A beautiful art nouveau inspired Celtic knot is the focal point of this whimsical fairy ribbon adorned necklace.
Instructions
Join the two silk ribbons together and trim off the two inches excess of the brown string so that the two pieces are the same length.About four and a half inches from the end of the strands, tie both strands together into a simple knot.Separate the two strands of ribbon and thread a round wood bead onto the brown strand only, so that the green fairy ribbon is on the outside of the bead.Tie both strands into a simple knot on the other side of the bead.Measure four inches down from the last knot and tie another simple knot with both strands. Repeat steps three and four.Measure four inches down from the last knot and tie another simple knot. Open a 7mm jump ring and thread it through the hole on the pendant, and through the hole on the bail. Gently close the jump ring again.Thread both strands of ribbon through the bail on the Celtic pendant and tie another simple knot on the other side of the bail, so that the bail fits snugly between the two knots.Four inches from the last knot, tie another simple knot and repeat steps three and four.Four inches from that knot tie another simple knot and repeat steps three and four. Measure four and a half inches from that last knot and trim off any ribbon beyond that.Take one end of your necklace, both strands together, and tightly roll about half an inch of material.Insert the rolled portion of the ribbon into the ribbon crimp and close the teeth using needle nose pliers. Do the same with the other end of the necklace. Tip: To make sure your ribbon is securely enclosed within the ribbon crimps, you may add a tiny dab of E6000 glue to the ribbon ends before you close the crimp.
  • Add a jump ring to each ribbon crimp end.
  • To one of those jump rings add a lobster clasp.
