This Bohemian inspired necklace uses the same knotting technique as in the last post. However, I used a finer waxed linen cord in a turquoise color. And used a large variety of beads to complete this look, starting with another lamp work bead as a focal, working off its beautiful color palette. I gathered some flat oval jade, crystals, ceramic, glass, and stone ,with a few brass beads thrown into the mix. I have to say that the waxed linen cord is a great material to work with. It comes in a  variety of colors and plies, very cheap, and makes a strong durable knot. The thin line of turquoise works to unify all the colors and textures of the beads in this piece.

It’s a bit longer than most necklaces I’ve made, other than the leather charms…

A good 26 inches from the tip of the tassel to the clasp.

  1. Gorgeous! Love the colors and textures in this one. I think the length will work well, too – especially with the size of the focal and dangles. What a great summer necklace!
