Garnet and Jade Knot Necklace


I guess I'm all about picking up half-finished projects lately. I was cleaning out one of the bins in my bathroom cabinet and found this necklace I started about a year ago. It was my first foray into knotted necklaces, and it was begun with no guidance on how to tie properly other than 26 years of fastening my shoelaces. It's made with silk thread that matches the small garnet stones and a t-bar fastener in the back. The large stone is faceted jade, I think.

this reminds me of a beautiful pattern I saw about knitting wristbands with beads arranged on the yarn ahead of time. anyone ever tried that? it sounds intriguing and not too difficult.
