A leather cord necklace has a simplicity that appeals to both men and women. Whether you create a bold necklace with large and chunky beads or something more delicate with smaller beads strung between knots on the leather cording, the combination of beads on leather cording makes an attractive necklace. Attach coil ends to leather cord necklaces for a simple and secure way to finish the ends of the leather cording and add a clasp.

  1. 1

    Cut a length of leather cord approximately 1 inch longer than the finished length you desire.

  2. 2

    Place a drop of the adhesive onto one end of the leather cord and insert the end of the cord into one of the coil ends. Push the leather cord as far into the coil end as possible.

  3. 3

    Position the needle-nose pliers onto the end coil of the coil end and squeeze the pliers around this coil to flatten it around the leather cord. The combination of adhesive and squeezed coil will hold the coil end securely.

  4. 4

    String your beads onto the leather cord as you desire.

  5. 5

    Finish the other end of the leather cord with the other coil end using the same technique.

  6. 6

    Attach a closure clasp to both loops of the coil ends to finish the necklace.
