Instructions:

1. Cut two 24” lengths of leather cord.

2. Make a coin knot with both lengths of cord using the illustration as a guide.

3. Trim the leather cord ends. Put glue in the silver cord end, push in leather cord ends, and allow the glue to completely dry.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 to make another coin knot.

5. Cut two 16” lengths of leather cord and two 4” lengths of silver wire. Fold each length of leather cord in half, forming a small loop in the middle of each cord. Wrap one length of silver wire around each length of leather cord, approximately ¼” back from the end of the loop. Wrap the wire to a length approximately ¼” long and trim off
excess wire.

6. Using 6mm jump rings, attach the loop in the middle of each length of leather cord to the loops of the silver cord ends on each coin knot.

7. Evenly trim the other end of the leather cords to the desired length and attach ribbon clamps. Cut a 3” length of chain extender. Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the 3” length of chain to one ribbon clamp and a 6mm jump ring and lobster claw to the other ribbon clamp.

8. Lay a mint green oval connector between the two coin knots. Use 6mm jump rings to attach each side of the connector to an end loop on each coin knot.

9. Use a 6mm jump ring to attach the narrow ends of a teardrop rhinestone connector to each coin knot, just underneath the mint green oval connector. Use another 6mm jump ring to connect to other ends of the teardrop rhinestone connectors together.

10. Using an eye pin, create a briolette drop using the druzy pendant. Use two 6mm jump rings to attach the loop in the druzy briolette to the bottom loop of each teardrop rhinestone connector.

This is very pretty. The directions are well written and straight forward. I fully understood them. I can't wait to gather what I need to make this. It won't take long and I can try different color combos too. This will make some very nice Christmas presents. Thanks for sharing this great creation.

Great appeal and a style all its own. Explicit directions are easy to follow, although I think the coin knot instructions might be clearer for those who want to make the jump to intermediate to have this necklace or give it as a special gift.

this pattern has product numbers but doesn't say where the items were purchased. Could you please supply that information?
