Here are an illustration to create a Y-lariat necklace using a single strand or wire or thread.
|1) Cut a lenght of your stringing material. Allow a generous length for your drop (at least twice the length of your drop).
2) Bead a small, strong bead into the middle. Then with the 2 thread ends together, double-thead through the beads you want for the central drop. The initial small bead will hold the other beads in place.
|3) Separate the threads into single strands when you are happy with your drop-beads. Thread beads on each side to create the rest of your necklace according to the look and design you have chosen.|
|4) Finish off your piece with the fastener of your choice.|
