Retired - Simply Wrapped Necklace

PROJECT N508
Designer: Kathy Mannix
Skill Level: Beginner
Sophisticated elegance all wrapped up in this crystal and waxed cotton necklace.
Instructions
Cut a piece of the cotton wax cord (XCR-4153) 3 feet in length.Fold the cord in half. Thread both cut ends of the cord through the 6mm closed jump (FJR-3063), pull the cord ends evenly through the jump ring until there is just a 1 inch long loop left on one side of the ring. Thread another 6mm jump ring onto just one of the strands. Bring both ends of the cord through the center of the 20mm crystal square ring (SWC-2040) looping it back through itself and around the crystal. This is a lark's head knot (see knotting video).Trim off both ends of the cord until each measures exactly 15 inches from the end of the crystal. Squeeze the two cut ends of the cord together, twirling tightly so they make a slight point at the end. Cut off about a 1/4 inch of scotch tape. Wrap the tape tightly around the cord end you just twisted. Trim off the end about an 1/8th of an inch. Slide the end with the tape into the crimp end (FCR-3140). Flatten the center of the crimp end using a pair of chain nose pliers. Alternate from one side to the other making sure it is as flat as you can make it.Open the largest jump ring (FJR-3116) and link onto the large crystal square. Close the jump ring.Open an 8mm jump ring and use it to link the small crystal square (SWC-2011) to the 6mm closed jump ring you placed on the cord strand earlier. (see photo) Close the jump ring.Open a 4mm jump ring (FJR-3043) and use it to link onto the loop of the 4mm crimp end to the lobster clasp (FCL-1004). Close jump ring.Please refer to photo for more detailed information about this project.
