Materials... two jump ropes (I chose a vibrant purple which the pic doesn't do it justice) from Dollar Tree (obvi $1 each), two copper tubes and caps (65 cents each at Home Depot), two magnets (a pack of 10 for $1.90 at Home Depot), scissors, lighter and hot glue gun
The chain is completed... I just went until I got to the end of my shorter ropes
Close up of my proud lanyard knot chain (yep I feel like I belong on a boat)
I am ready for spring and all of the lovely nautical stripes!
Now that I have the hang of the knots... I will be creating many more rope necklaces for my friends to sport in the spring!
** I will probably use jewelry findings on my next rope necklace because the necklace is a bit too heavy to be held by two little magnets. It does connect... but doesn't feel very secure...
