Finding that perfect material sometimes gets the creative juices–as well as busy fingers–going. The perfect material for me was the gorgeous round beads that you can find in the Bead Gallery aisle at your local Michaels store. Pairing them with pretty Bead Gallery and Sedona pendants made for a week of knotting happiness!

The key ingredients to a great knotted necklace are:

Put those all together, and you’ve got a recipe for some killer necklaces that have a casual, beachy feel and look great layered or worn on their own.

Here’s a batch I made last week featuring the new Sedona Pendants along with semi-precious, Czech glass and natural stone rounds you can find at your local Michaels Store. I’ll show you how to make your own knotted necklace featuring your choice of rounds and pendant in today’s Monday Make!


I’m sure you can’t make just one!

The featured knotted necklace is called the Seychelles Necklace. Here’s a step by step set of instructions to get you started!

    This is EXACTLY what I was looking for this past weekend! I just couldn’t make it work so I went back to my tried and true bead stringing with seed bead “knots” and it worked! I will have to try with waxed linen. I love that stuff! Enjoy the day. Erin

    Erin, I LOVE being able to use seed beads between beads for a knotted look. I always think that knots or seed beads make us see each bead individually rather than as a mass and draws our attention in a way that gives each bead a little bit of a spotlight. The seed bead trick is a great timesaver, though. These necklaces aren’t quick, but they’re great to do while watching the latest Downton Abbey!

    Making these necklaces has led me to want to make so many more! The drape of linen is so pretty. You can get both black and white waxed linen cord at Michaels Store!
