Maxi Charm Necklaces

Thank you for viewing our archived gallery design. This design is in the gallery archive because we no longer stock some of the main items used to make this design and we don’t currently have suitable alternatives. However we didn’t want to remove the design completely as we thought it might inspire you. If you’d like to buy all the items needed to create a project please visit our main design gallery and browse our current designs.

Step 1

Take your leather cord and cut it to the length you wish your necklace to be. These necklaces look stunning when the charm sits just below the bust, so we'd reccomend cutting to approx. 64cm.

Use Fevi-Kwik to attach the cord ends. NB. You may need to cut the end of the leather cord into a 'point' by carefully snipping both sides in a diagonal direction. This will allow the cord to sit in the cord ends better, add the Fevi Kwik to the cord end and push in firmly using pliers if you wish.

Step 2

Attach a soldered ring onto the cord. Attach a 2mm jumpring, then a lobster clasp to one cord end. Add a 4mm jumpring to the other cord end. Add a 2mm jumpring to the cord, followed by another, then your charm of choice! To change your charm, simply open the jumpring and attach another. NB. If you are using a charm pendant with a bail already attached, simply remove the jumpring attached to the cord end, slide the charm pendant on and reattach the jumpring you removed.
