South Pacific Necklace

PROJECT N2132
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Create a beautiful illusion of free floating pearls with the necklace featuring dark peacock knotted pearls and Eternity Bead Frames.
Instructions
This necklace is about 20 inches in length. To modify the length, simply adjust the number of pearls strung on the length of the necklace accordingly.
  1. Please begin by watching our video: Pearl Knotting with Tweezers. From what you learned in the video take your griffin silk off the card. Move to the end without the needle and tie a knot.
  2. String on one knot clasp. Before closing the clam shell, add a dab of GS Hypo Cement to secure your knot. Close the clam shell and trim your griffin silk.
  3. Begin the pearl knotting. Complete 39 pearls and end with one knot.
  4. Next thread the griffin silk through one hole of the bead frame, going into the center. Make another knot, then knot on three pearls (knots in-between).
  5. Thread the silk through the hole (going to the outside) that is eight over from the hole you entered.
  6. Guide the silk along the bead frame and go down 5 holes to enter back into the center of the frame. Tie a knot and add five knotted pearls.
  7. Thread out the hole that is five holes below the first hole you entered. Both sides should match.
  8. Next, guide the silk around the top of the frame to the 13th hole from the one you just came out. This should be the hole just before the hole right next to the hole you exited after you added the three pearls.
  9. String down into the center of the frame and out the next hole; the same hole as the you exited after you added the three pearls. Tie a knot.
  10. Now continue your pearl knotting to add 39 pearls. End the the knot cover the same as you did at the beginning.
  11. Open the loop of the knot cover and attach the loop on the clasp, Close the loop of the knot cover. Repeat this on the other side to attach the other side of the clasp and you're all done!
