Multi Strand Knotted Necklaces


I started creating these necklaces in 2000. Since then, the style has been refined and I've developed 25 different color schemes. The necklace is finished with sterling silver cones and a hand-crafted hook clasp. It is about 30" long, so it can just be put on over one's head instead of using the clasp. It's nice to have that option.

The nylon cord used to string the necklace comes in so many wonderful colors, which have inspired some of the combinations I offer. I wholesale this necklace (and 2 variations of) to Portfolio, a beautiful clothing store in Anchorage, Alaska.

The necklace pictured here is done in soft turquoise blues, pale greens and shades of yellow. It perfectly fit the etsyBEAD Theme of the Week "Sun & Surf" earlier this summer.
