  • Instructions
  • Supplies

Knotted silk strands are a fun way to create cool patterns within your jewelry. They also allow you to mix beads in beautiful ways. Candie used Swarovski crystal beads, Dakota Stones gemstone beads, and even TierraCast spacers on the knotted strand in this cool necklace. By attaching the chain to strand, she made a simple design that doesn't require a clasp and can be slipped on over the head! See more ideas for creating knotted strands in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
