String Twine
Rubber placemat for backing or cardstock
silver clasp
earrings hooks
Jump Rings
Pliers
Craft Glue

Instructions

To begin this project you need to cut up a place mat or similar backing. I used an old Christmas one. Using the clasps I clamp each on into the centre of my pieces.

I am going for a round pendant and oblong earrings. The cords I used are actually from a hardware store but you can use whatever it is you have available.

Start by applying a thick layer of glue to the base of your first piece. Then using fiddly fingers twist the yarn around onto the circle making sure it sits close but not overlapping.

Once you are happy, trim the ends and add some extra glue to stop the cords from fraying.

Do the same things for the earrings. Once finished allow to dry before attaching the earring hooks and jump rings.
