I wanted a very long draping necklace....
so I used another 3 foot of leather and cut it in half.
Fold each piece of leather in half,
draw it through the existing loop on the three strands.
Wrap 5 snug wraps around the leather.
At the end of the two strands fold the leather down.
Add your clasp and wrap five times.
Repeat on the other side with the other half of your clasp.
This necklace is 26" long and is very casual.
Add different Wood beads for a more Colorful look or even
a hammered link where the leather is attached
