knotted necklace with small bead connector

instead of using french wire to attach silk thread to clasps or connectors, try using seed beads or small crystal strands! for this project, we knotted two segments of denim wood rondelles, each looped around a large, thin, brushed gold ring, that we looped and wire-wrapped suede to. we sell suede straps premade, but if you'd like to recreate this technique, try making your own suede strap for a flawless connection.




as always, these necklaces are meant for your inspiration! you are welcome to model your own set after what we have made, or simply create within the same palette. if you do make your own version, we'd love to see! tag us on instagram @beadsinccharlotte. happy beading!
