Leather Cord and Knots Owl Necklace Tutorial

DIY Fácil collar de Búho

Las week I was shopping for some craft supplies and I saw this cute owl pendant, I couldn’t help it and I bought it (thankfully it was very cheap). I also found some lovely leather cords and other nice jewelry accessories so I run back home super excited to start my new craft!
El otro día estaba comprando materiales para hacer manualidades y vi este lindo colgante de búho, no lo pude resistir y lo compré (por suerte era muy econoónmico). Además encontré unos cordones de cuero y otros accesorios para joyería y me vine a casa súper emocionada a empezar mi nueva manualidad!!!

Here is how I made it:
Pues aquí esta cómo lo dice:

What you need:
Lo que necesitas:

I used 2 colors, which means 2 cords. I used green and violet. I cut them to equal size, long enough that when the knots are made, the necklace is still on the wished length. It’s always better to have leftovers.
Yo utilicé 2 colores, lo que significa dos cordones, yo usé verde y violeta. Los corté del mismo largo, lo suficiente como para que cuando haga los nudos quede a la altura deseada, es preferible que sobre a que falte.

Since the hanging hole is too small, I  used just one of the cords to attach the pendant. I took the violet one and I fold it in half.
Como el hueco para colgar el búho es muy pequeño, utilicé solo uno de los cordones para sujetarlo. Tomé el violeta y lo doblé justo en la mitad.
I inserted the folded end through the hole, from the back to the front.
Pasé el extreme doblado por el hueco en el búho de atrás hacia adelante
When it was out, I left a few centimeters, I inserted the other end (both cords) through the folded end and pulled all the cord leaving a little space
Cuando había pasado unos centímetros, pasé por dentro del cordón lo extremos sobrantes hasta el final y ajusté un poco dejando un pequeño espacio
Through that space I inserted the green cord half way.
Por ese espacio pasé el cordón verde hasta la mitad
I tightened the violet cord to the green one.
Ajusté el cordón violeta hasta que quedara bien apretadito,
At this point you should have both color on each side of the pendant.
En este punto ya se tiene ambos colores para ambos lados
I made the first knot a few centimeters away from the pendant.
Hice el primer nudo a unos pocos centímetros del colgante
Make it tight. I tried to make visible both color on the knot.
Apreté bien, yo buscaba que quedaran visibles ambos colores.
Keeping the same distance I made a knot on the other strip and here is the pattern you’ll follow
A la misma altura hice el nudo del otro lado y ya ahí se tiene el patrón a seguir.
From that point on I repeated the knots at the same distance until it gets the desired lengh.
De ahí en adelante se hacen nudos a distancias iguales y se va midiendo hasta que tenga la altura que se desea.
When I got it done I measured again putting the owl where I wanted it to be on my chest and made a mark to guide where to put the clasp.
Al terminar los nudos, me medí el largo del collar de tal manera que el Búho  quedara justo debajo de mi garganta y marqué con un rotulador (marcador) donde se colocaría el cierre.
I used some cord ends on strip.
Utilicé unas grapitas de cierre para cada extremo del collar.
I placed it just before the mark because he clasps make the necklaces longer.
La ubique justo atrás de la marca pues esto mas los cierres alargan el collar.
Placing both cords in the cord end, I tightened with a handle. I didn’t cut the leftovers yet just in case the length need to be fixed.
Teniendo los dos cordones de cada extremo cerré las grapitas y luego con pinzas o alicates (preferiblemente de bisutería) las apreté con fuerza. No corté aún el cordón pues por si acaso lo veía muy largo o corto lo podía arreglar.
When I finished with both ends I took some jump rings.
Terminados los dos extremos tomé los aritos
With handles I opened a little bit one jump ring, enough to insert the cord end ring.
Con las pinzas los abrí un poquito, lo suficiente para que el aro de la grapita pasara.
I inserted the cord end and the clasp on each end. I closed the jump ring again, of course.
Allí puse los extremos de los cordones y las piezas del cierre de cada lado. Cerré nuevamente los aros, por supuesto!.
Now if everything is ok I did cut the lefovers.
Si todo estaba bien, ahora sí corté los sobrantes del cordón.
That’s it!!! Cute isn’t it???
Y ya esta!!! ¿Verdad que quedó lindo???
How do I look? I LOOOOVE it!!! =D
¿Que tal me queda? Me encantaaaa!!!! =D
What do you think????
Que les parece???
