1

Gather your tools and materials. You’ll need scissors and flatnose pliers. You’ll just be using them to squish your crimp beads so any hardware store pliers will work.

2

Fold the magenta cording in half and line it up with your first brass bar.

Thread the cord through through the holes on each side.

Once the cord has gone through both holes pull the bar evenly until it reaches the middle of the cord.

Next add a brass donut on each end of the cord. You’ll add two brass donut beads in between each bar.

If the cord starts to fray or become difficult to work with just give it a quick snip.

Continue adding bars and donut beads until you’ve threaded all five bars onto the cord.

Just made this on lunch break today. Cute and quick project! Will wear this often. The cord on this is thin enough that the sliding knot treatment works well (haven't been as wild about it on some of the other necklaces). Been in a creative slump lately, so hopefully this will snap me back to daily making!
