    Materials Used To make The  Project

    Quick Project Steps

    Remove the silk thread from its card and stretch it slightly by hand.
    Make a knot at one end to prevent fraying and another about 10 inches up from the end.
    Thread a pattern of one crystal, an amber chip, and another crystal, then tie a knot against the beads.
    Continue adding beads and knots according to the desired pattern.
    Once all strands are completed, align them for layering and tie an overhand knot with all strands at both ends.
    Braid the ends and add a lobster clasp by knotting it on. Secure the knot with a dab of glue. Create a loop on the other end for the clasp.
