STEP 1: Cut aprox. 43cm of both leather and ribbon. Holding both together, fold them in half. Feed the folded centre through the pendant to form a loop. Pass the 4 loose ends through this loop and pull tight.
STEP 2: Add a cord end and a jump ring to each of the 4 cord ends. Bring one of the leather cords and one of the ribbons together and join with a jump ring. Repeat this on the other side. Attach a lobster clasp to one side and a large jump ring to the other side.
For a simple necklace, you could stop here. To create the full necklace pictured you will need to create a peyote stitch section.
Peyote Stitch Instructions:STEP 3: Cut a metre of KO thread. Add a stopper bead to the end, leaving a 6 inch tail. Pick up 5 size 8 seed beads and push them up against the stopper bead. Your thread should now exit bead 6. Pick up 1 size 8 bead. Working back towards the first bead you added, skip the 6th bead and pass back through the 5th (see diagram 1 below). Repeat twice more, picking up one bead and skipping one. You will go through beads 3 and 1 (see diagram 2).
STEP 4: Continue in this way until you have created 10 rows (see diagram 3). Wrap the strip of peyote around all 4 strands of cord and join together to form a tube.
STEP 5: Take the thread down so it exits one of the beads at the bottom of the peyote tube. Thread on some size 15 seeds, a size 8 seed, a crystal and a size 15 seed. Come back up through the crystal and all the other beads to create a dangle. Repeat this process until you have created a dangle from each bottom bead. Weave your thread back through and secure. Cut off any excess.
