Skill level: Beginner, no experience necessary
What you will learn: 
  •  How to knot around your stone or crystal to form a pendant
  •  How to braid - with discussion of some more advanced alternatives for making the rest of the necklace
Tools and materials:
  • Small stone, crystal, or other item for your pendant.  Round, slightly elongated stones are easiest.  Please avoid anything smaller than 1 cm wide.
  • At least 10 feet of your choice of cord.  Any material that's easily knotted and braided (hemp, cotton, linen, etc) is fine.  Thinner cord (ex 1mm) is easier to work with and is especially recommended for any skinny pendant items, like crystal points.
  • Optional: 2 loop end crimps and your choice of clasp.  These necklaces are typically made long enough to be knotted together at the end and fit over your head, but if you would prefer a short necklace you will need loop end crimps and a clasp.

Location: Classes are held at our store, 1544 Park Street, Alameda, CA 94501.
