Let's Get Looped!

The Cradle Rock!




This project takes the pearl knotting technique to a modern new level!  Using a strand of crystals and two strands of silk, we will use a simple over-the-hand knot technique to cradle each crystal, as if it were being cradled.  This technique is much easier than pearl knotting, and a creates a gorgeous look.  We will create an approximately 32 inch necklace that you can throw over your head.  And once you have learned, I guarantee you will want to make another one!  These necklaces look gorgeous layered together!
