Statement Necklace Part I - Golden Knot Necklace

My sisters and I used to make jewelry when we were younger.  I have been inspired by all of the DIY jewelry making out there to make my own.  I made a stop by my local Michael's and made two statement necklaces.  Here is the first one I made.  I love the gold jewelry out this summer so designed this quick piece to share with you.


This is my pretty knot necklace.  It was easy but a little time consuming to string all of the seed beads.  To make this I used:

  • 0.018mm necklace wire
  • two different sizes of gold seed beads
  • Clasp
  • Bead tips - they look like this
  • Chain
  • 2 - Jump rings
  • Crimps
Once I determined how long the necklace should be I strung the seed beads on the wire.  I used the larger seed beads in the middle and the smaller ones one the end.  I varied the amount of large beads in the middle on each strand so they were not all the same.


At the end of each strand I placed the bead tip, then the crimp.  I squeezed the crimp and folded the bead tip around the crimp and cut off the extra wire.


Then at the end of the stand I placed a jump ring.  I did that for all 6 strands and attached them to the jump ring for both sides.  For the finishings I attached the clasp to one side and a chain to the other.


Then I knotted the 6 strands together at the end.  Isn't it pretty? I have so many things I can wear with it.  It goes great with my little green Anthropologie earrings.  The total for the necklace was maybe $15.

  2. This is gorgeous -- it immediately caught my eye over at TT&J. I know this is a statement necklace, but I could see getting daily use out of it. I love a great necklace to elevate an otherwise plain jane mom outfit. Thanks for the inspiration!

  14. This is so beautiful! It looks very expensive. I have never made jewelry before. I am afraid I might get addicted and I don't have time to get addicted to another passion for crafts. Ha Ha. Great job. It really is beautiful!

  15. gorgeous and simple! You made it look so easy to make. Definitely pinned this too!

  16. Beautiful! I bet this would look really pretty if you used three shades of beads (two strings of each colour) and made an ombre necklace in the same style.

    I made a braided seed bead necklace like this a few years ago and remember how long it takes to thread them all onto the wires!

  25. Love, love, love this! Want to try it--but am uncertain. What sizes were your seed beads? How did you know how much length the knot center would take up when you planned the length? Were all the beaded strands the same length? Sorry for my many questions -- I am just so inspired by your beautiful necklace!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I tried to make this necklace, and it's not that hard! I did run in to the problem though that after I tied the knot in it, it doesn't stay loose looking like yours does, it ends up getting pulled a lot tighter. Did yuo run in to this problem at all?

    ReplyDelete
  27. thanks for sharing.

  28. My daughter and I are planning to make this necklace next weekend ~ it truly is beautiful. Could you please post a response with a bit more detailed instruction as this will be our first beading project. Like Shannon, I would like to know the two bead sizes, how many grams of seed beads each, and the length of each of the six strands before knotting. Thanks in advance for any additional help! LRK

  29. That gold knot necklace is STUNNING! I can't wait to make one! I would also love to link to your how-to in my next Jewelry Roundup if you didn't mind.

  33. WOW! Only yesterday I started making a similar one from pale pink pearls, 5 strands BUT how much extra length do I allow for the knot??

    ReplyDelete
  34. i love this! it's so simple, but has so much impact!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I made this and used 30", it was a little too long but still turned out very pretty. If I were to make one again I would probably go 27-28". Great project!

    ReplyDelete
  36. There needs to be more detailed information for the completion of this necklace. How long do you make the strands to be able to knot them and are they all the same length and what size beads? I need more specifics!! Help please!
