Nautical necklace in 5 minutes

Here 's what was needed for this nautical style necklace:

 rondelle greek ceramic beads in red, white, blue
acetino blue braided silk cord  

a couple of silver plated beads
a set of the suitable silver plated cord ends, a set of jump rings and a lobster clasp. I also used a bit of glue to secure the cord in the cord ends.

Cut the cord in the desired length, and begin by stringing a silver bead, then interchange the blue, red, white ceramic beads and end with the other silver plated bead.

You can wrap the tip of the cord with tape to make it pass more easily through the narrower beads.

Add some glue in the cord ends and push the cord in. Add the jump rings and lobster clasp. You have an all time classic for summer nautical style necklace.

Silk cord earrings

For these easy to make earrings you will need grey 1,5mm silk cord, two leaf silver plated charms,
orange and black greek ceramic beads, and 3mm silver plated cord ends.

You will also need a pair of earwires and some glue.

Cut two pieces of approximately 10cm of the silk cord, in fact you should burn them with a lighter instead of cutting them or they will fray. Pass the ceramic beads and leaf charms on the cords.

Take the two ends of each piece of cord and push them in the cord end after putting a bit of glue.

Use pliers to open the loop of the earwire, hang the cord end and close again.

You are done!
