Products used in this project
Not all products are available for this project
Cut a 20, 21 and 22 inch lengths of ribbon in each colour. The thread zapper was used, so that the ribbons would not fray.
Cut 3 lengths of monofilament. This necklace used approx. 35 inches, to make sure there was enough for knotting.
Thread an abalone nugget onto the monofilament, and then put the thread through the nugget again and tighten.
Keep doing this, roughly spacing the nuggets 1 and a half inches apart until you have about 23 inches long. Create a 23 inch, a 22 inch, and a 21 inch one.
Knot the 3 lengths of monofilament at each end. This will make the completion of the necklace a lot easier. Make sure that the monofilament is straight and untwisted before you knot it.
Put a bit of E6000 glue in the ribbon cord end.
Layer the ribbon into it, starting with the shortest piece, and ending with the long piece. Then add the monofilament so it is at the left side of the ribbon cord end.
Shut the ribbon cord end. Use your fingers first then flat nose pliers. The difficulty is keeping all the ends in while you do this
Attach jump rings onto the ribbon ends, at the same time attach the toggle clasp.
The necklace is now nearly complete. Put it on a necklace display bust and decide where you would like the anchor charms to go.
Attach the charms to jump rings.
Look where the loop of monofilament is around the nuggets. Loosen one and attach the jump ring of the charm to it. This keeps the charm in the same place on the necklace.
