This necklace is made in macrame style. I used dyed treated hemp for my threads (8 threads in this necklace), the beads included are seed beads in pink and purple, 3 black onyx beads, and a murano glass pendant.
The necklace is comprised of a couple different types of macrame knots, the flat knot, alternating flat knot, box not, and half knot. the alternating flat knots at the tops give it a nice swirl that is sturdy, but flexible.
One of the onyx beads was used to make the clasp, which is a toggle clasp. The entire clasp is also macramed right into each side of the necklace to create durability and sturdiness in the clasp.
Since I used dyed treated hemp for this piece, the necklace itself is nice and soft against skin, and the small number of strings makes for a thin necklace.
