This necklace uses a TierraCast hammered bail spacer in different ways to achieve a cohesive style. Leather makes a wonderful complement to all of the hammered textures.
TierraCast's Soulful Spirit collection combines geometric shapes with global influences and bohemian style. This necklace shows off all three of those elements wonderfully. Tube beads feature lotus and hammered motifs for an artisan, tribal look. The leather completing the necklace adds that boho touch. You can see more from the Soulful Spirit collection in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Cut a 52-inch length of 1.5mm natural light brown round leather in half. Set aside for now.
Cut a length of jewelry wire approximately 10 inches long and add a gold-plated 2x2mm crimp tube. Thread the end of the wire through the loop of a TierraCast gold-plated pewter hammered bail spacer and go back through the crimp tube. Crimp in place.
Pick up one piece of your leather and thread the end through the bail at one end of your necklace. Center the leather on the bail and secure with an overhand knot next to the bail. Tie a second overhand knot at the ends of the cords. You can trim the ends if you feel the leather is too long. Repeat on the other side of the necklace.
