Glass Pendant Necklace

You can find inexpensive glass pendants in bead stores, or the jewelry section at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, JoAnns, and other chain stores. Pick one in your favorite colors, then get coordinating Kreinik threads to make the chain. Voila! In minutes, with the Kreinik Custom Corder, you have a gorgeous necklace to wear with that summer maxi dress.

Materials needed:

  • glass pendant
  • Kreinik Medium #16 Braid in color to match your pendant (we chose 006 Blue)
  • Kreinik 1/8" Ribbon (10m) in color to match your pendant (we chose 001L Solar Silver)
  • Kreinik Silk Serica in color to match your pendant (we chose 8050 Black)
  • Kreinik Custom Corder
  • jewelry findings (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Measure how long you want your chain, or cord, to be…then multiply that times three. That is the length you need to cut in each thread (Braid, Ribbon, Serica).
  2. Hold all three lengths together and tie both ends.
  3. Insert one end into the hook of the Kreinik Custom Corder. Have a friend hold the other end (or secure it to a bulletin board or wall to hold it tight while you cord).
  4. Keeping the length tight as you cord, begin turning the handle of the Corder and twist the fibers together.
  5. Keep cording until the strand feels like it is tightly twisted, then carefully remove the Corder while holding that end tightly, and place the corder in the center of your twisted cord. While keeping constant tension, bring the two ends together. Release the corder and allow it to spin freely.
  6. Remove the corder, slide your glass pendant onto the chain/cord, then tie both ends together.

Note: if you want to make a short chain/cord, rather than one that slips over your head, get jewelry findings at the store and add to the ends.
