Strength Necklace Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

This Father's Day design is easily customizable and can be finished in minutes. The combination of braided leather with a bold pendant creates a look of strength and simplicity. For this design, you can use either a square or round pendant. Check near the bottom of these instructions for fun alternatives.

Square Pendant
Step one: Unclasp the 18-inch 3.5mm natural braided leather necklace.
Step two: Slide the green tribal tube top rectangle pendant onto the necklace.

Round Pendant
Step one: Attach the 7mm sterling silver open jump ring to the strength symbol ceramic pendant. Form a small chain from the first jump ring by attaching the 6.3mm sterling silver jump ring and then the 9mm sterling silver jump ring. For help with jump rings, visit the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center.
Step two: Unclasp the black 18-inch 4.5mm braided leather necklace and slide the 9mm jump ring onto the necklace.
