I wrapped beading twine around the legs of a chair about 15 or 16 times and tied the two ends together in a little not. Then I started wrapping embroidery thread in sections. The thread is wrapped tightly so I ended up needing pliers to pull the needle through. I used different colors on different halves of the necklace, so that if you wrapped it around your neck it might look like two different necklaces. In the end I thought it needed something so I added gold jump rings.
