Simple and Trendy Adjustable Leather Necklace Tutorial

Haven't done one of these for a while so here is a simple tutorial for you.

All you will need about 3 feet of 2mm round leather lace and a pendant.

Products I am using:
34737017 - Cord Basics 25yd Brown Leather Cord
Pendant from the dollar bin at Walmart (Also a Cousin product)

Measure and cut 3 feet of the leather and soak in a bowl of water for about five to ten minutes to soften the leather up.  Remove and dry off with paper towels.  Give the leather a gentle squeeze to remove any excess water.

Thread your pendant onto the leather and lay the ends parallel.

This is where it might get tricky, so check out this video tutorial just in case my instructions are unclear.

Take one end and fold it back over itself and hold the other end up against it. It will make a big loop.

Wrap the folded end around itself and the other end two times.

Tuck in the end of the wrap under all the loops and pull tight.  This will pull in your large loop and get very snug.  Your large loop should disappear into the wrapping.

Repeat for the other side.  Knots should slide easily against the leather.

Enjoy your new trendy and simple sliding knot necklace.
