Step one: Create a tubular herringbone stitch tube approximately 10 1/2 inches long using the Turquoise Trail 15/0 Designer Seed Bead Blend. Each row will have eight beads in it. For help with creating the tubular herringbone stitch, please see our Mini Tutorial.
Step two: Glue one end of your rope into the JBB 5mm antique brass leaves swivel end cap. Repeat on the other end of the rope and allow to dry.
Step three: Cut a length of satin Hamilton gold-plated textured oval cable chain approximately 8 1/2 inches long. Attach it to one end of the rope using a 6mm 18 gauge satin Hamilton gold-plated open jump ring. For help with opening and closing jump rings, please see our Handy Tip Video. Repeat on the other end of the necklace and then add a 12x6.5mm satin Hamilton gold-plated trigger clasp to the end of the chain using a jump ring.
