    Gather Materials: Greek leather cord, 6mm white magnesite beads, 4mm Potomac pearls, 11/0 seed beads, thread, and needles. Prepare the Thread: Cut a piece of thread and thread your needle. Leave a small tail for tying knots later. Start Right-Angle Weave: String one 6mm bead, one 4mm pearl, and two 11/0 seed beads. Repeat this sequence three times and form a loop by threading back through the first bead. Create Beaded Bead: Reinforce the structure by sewing through beads again. Add seed beads between pearls to tighten the structure and form an X pattern. Attach to Leather Cord: Thread the leather cord through the beaded bead, secure with knots, and add additional beaded beads as desired. Adjust Lengths: Make knots in the leather cord at different lengths for a cascading effect. Final Adjustments: Ensure all beads are secure, cut excess thread, and burn thread ends with a thread burner. Wear and Enjoy: Slide the necklace over your head and adjust the beads to your desired length.
