  • Designer Tip: Cut the ribbon in half. Cut 3 feet of the waxed nylon cord. Find the middle and coil around the Graywood ring about 12 times. Cut 2 6 inch pieces of the waxed nylon cord. Fold one piece of ribbon around the ring next to the coil, overlapping about ½ inch. Use one 6 inch piece of the waxed cord to form a 3-wrap coil knot around both the ribbon and the long tail of waxed cord. Trim the ribbon flush to the coil knot and use a small amount of glue to secure. Repeat on other side. String a Graywood coin bead on one side of the waxed cord and form an overhand knot about 1-1 ½ inches from the center ring. Repeat two more times, varying the distance between the knots. Note: work slowly when tightening the knot, working first the ribbon and then the cord, as the ribbon stretches and the cord does not. Trim the end of the cord about 1/8 inch from the last knot and use a lighter to melt the end. Repeat for second side. Cut the remaining 2 feet of cord in half. Form a Lark's head knot with both strands. Use a small amount of glue on the back of the knot to secure. String 5 Graywood coin beads and the 2 Kazuri beads on the tails of the waxed cord and use overhand knots to secure the beads as shown. Trim the tails to about 1/16 inch and secure with a small amount of glue. Use the ribbon ends to tie the necklace on, adjusting the length as desired.
