I took the softest black suede cord, approx. 72 inches and after each knot I would string a freshwater pearl that was hand-wrapped with fine silver. I would repeat this pattern randomly to the end of the cord. Then I would double wrap and sometimes triple wrap making it a multi-stranded necklace. I finished it with a bali silver hook-n-eye closure that a double-knotted at each end. The pearls flow with no pattern making it a gorgeous piece. I also make it with peacock pearls and olive suede.
