Sophie demonstrates how to create this beautiful woven necklace to go with the God's Eye Earrings she created in an earlier video.
6mm glass seed beads
variegated enbroidery floss
scissors - one pair for fabric and one for general use
flair pen or marker
1mm leather cord
Place a drop of the glue in the center of one of your toothpicks and glue them together to form a cross. Let this dry for at least 3-4 minutes.
Wrap your variegated embroidery floss around the center point of the floss a few times. Add a drop of glue to secure.
Wrap the cord twice over the glue, make a quarter turn and repeat until you have wrapped the yarn all the way around the center of the cross.
When you have the center of the eye created it is time to start weaving the rest.
Create the God's Eye like we have in the past. Wrap the yarn around each stick twice and the move a quarter turn to the next stick and repeat.
Continue weaving until you have created the God's Eye in the size you prefer.
At the end, wrap the yarn two or three times and place a small dab of glue to finish the weave and lock the floss in place.
Trim the floss, leaving about 6 inches extra.
Next we are going to make a loop to attach it to the necklace. Put a bead on the thread and then bring the other end of the floss down through the bead.
Slide the bead down onto the toothpick to lock in the loop.
Slide beads onto each of the three other ends of the toothpick. Secure with a drop of glue.
Use your general scissors to trim off the pointy ends of each toothpick.
Cut a piece of your leather cord to approsimately 24 inches.
Pass the cord through the loop you created at the top of the God's Eye. Tie your cord together with a slip knot to create the necklace.
Place a few beads, or as many as you like, at the end of the cord. I prefer to pass my beads over both ends of the cord to create a nice hanger for the God's Eye.
