2 pieces of orange C-Lon nylon cord-cut 36" each
1/2" diameter jump rings (2)
Ear wires (2)
8 mm faceted AB orange colored crystal for the center or each ring (2)
11/o seed beads (orange/pink color)
5mm bicone shaped crystal beads (2)
Lark’s head knot/sennet
1. Before beginning to knot the cord, attach a large jump ring to the
ear wire with pliers. Starting at the middle of the cord, tie the cord
to ring with a lark’s head knot. This knot will be tied at the bottom
of the ring, opposite the ear wire.
2. Bring the ends of the cord to the center of the ring and add an orange
colored crystal bead, sliding it over both cords to sit suspended in the
middle of the ring.
3. Bring the cords to the opposite side of the ring, split the cords with
the ear wire in the middle of the two cords. Start with one of the cords
to knot. Tie one lark’s heads knot and then add a seed bead to the
working cord. Tie a sennet of lark’s head knots with a bead added
after each knot. Work around the ring in opposite directions with each
cord, adding beads around the ring.
4. Tie an equal number of knots on each side of the ear wire until the
entire ring is covered with knotted beads. Pull the remaining cords down
and slide a bicone crystal over both cords, followed by an overhand knot
to secure. Clip the ends of the cord and melt or glue to secure the knot
and prevent fraying.
