An agate donut pendant, hangs from silver strands of leather in a larks head knot with some amount of metal element in the form of jump rings that give it a chain maille effect.
Karla Schafer, Aunties Beads Designer
- Cut a 22" piece of leather and fold it in half.
- Slip the loop formed at the fold and push it through the center of the donut pendant.
- Slip 4 jump rings onto the loop of leather, keeping them in front of the donut.
- Slip the two even ends of leather through the loop tighten around the top of the donut, slipping the jump rings to the top.
- The jump rings should be "standing" at the top of the pendant, behind the larks head knot. Let's position the piece so that the jump rings are facing you, in front of the knot.
- Separate the jump rings into two, two up and two down. Take the even ends of leather through the two down jump rings, careful not to twist the leather ends and gently tug to tighten.
- You should now see something that resembles a chain maille like link.
- Make adjustments to length of remaining leather and add the leather crimp ends by slipping them over the ends and crimping the center channel with chain nose pliers to complete the necklace.
