Two closures come to mind. The simplest is to knot a loop in one end of
the string and knot a large bead on the other, with the bead being slipped
through the loop (much like a button through a button hole) to form the
closure. This type would work regardless of the necklace length, and would
be appropriate for a choker.
The second involves each cord being tied over the other using an overhand
knot on each side. (Do you chrochet? Think of the first knot formed to
begin a simple chain.) The knot in each end slides over the cord from
the other end, with each each knot forming a “stop” at the end of the cord.
This one is hard to explain, but soooo easy when you see it. It allows
for adjustment of the necklace length to some degree, but doesn’t work well
with most chokers. Should you want a picture, email me your FAX, and I’ll
simply do a photocopy of this and fax it to you. Isn’t Orchid Great!!
