|1) Cut a thong with a minimum length that will give a loose fit over your head. Make it longer if you would like to have a long-to-short variable length necklace.
2) String your beads according to your design.
|3) Place the ends of your thong so that both ends of your thong overlaps and the ends are sitting directly opposite from each other.
|4) See the diagram. On the right side of your necklace, take that end: and pass the end according to the diagram.|
|5) Same with the other side: following the digram.
|6) Tighten both knots but make sure to leave a short end outside the knot so that they don't unravel.
7) These sliding knots can be moved up and down which gives you an adjustable-length necklace.
