Celtic knot necklace DIY

 
In my earlier post I shared with you the earrings I made here. That was a very simple and fun DIY. In this post I will share with you one of my favorite necklace I have made till date. It's time taking and little tricky but it's gorgeous thing to possess. The Celtic knot necklace.



I got my inspiration from exactly same turquoise Celtic knot necklace I saw on Pinterest, but I am unable to find it now.

So, if you want to make one for yourself, I would let you know what I did. I bought my turquoise beads from Walmart (three tubes) each for one dollar I think and all the other supplies for the necklace too(crimp cover, jump rings, magnetic closure, wire for beading, chain etc.).

Start by making a basic necklace of 18 inches approximately. Just by putting beads in an 18 inch long wire. I made 12 for each sides ( total 24 I told you it's time taking procedure) . When you have finished making necklace, tie a knot so that it doesn't open.


When you are done making 24 necklaces, the next step is to make a Celtic knot. I followed this tutorial for making one and it also took a lot of time to get the thing right. The Celtic knot will connect all the 24 pieces of necklaces together and will make it one like this.



Then, wrap the necklace up and down so that all the individual necklaces look like one necklace.



Then, with the help of jump rings connect all the crimp covers on both sides and put magnetic closures.

That's it the necklace is ready now.



Isn't it a beauty? What do you think? Let me know your suggestions and comments. Happy crafting.
