Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it!

Choose your favourite twine or string and craft this wonderful heart-shaped Merida inspired necklace. A lovely handmade gift for a special occasion.

What You'll Need
  • 40-inch length of coloured beading cord
  • Pliers
  • Pair of crimp-style end clasp clips and O-rings
  • Necklace clasp
How To Make It
  1. Use pliers to attach the clasp clips to the beading cord ends. Add an O-ring to each clip. Then attach the clasp.

  2. To fashion the heart, fold the cord over itself to create a small loop about 14 inches from the left end. Feed the right end up through the loop, as shown.

  3. Loop the right end back around, threading it down into the upper loop and then up through the lower loop, as shown. At this point, the knot will essentially resemble a loop within a loop.

  4. Pass the same end you’ve been working with under the knot and up through the bottom portion of the centre loop. Next, thread the end down through the centre of the knot and back up through the top portion of the centre loop.

  5. Turn the cord so that the loose ends are at the top. Now shape the knot into a more defined heart by gently pinching the bottom into a V and slightly separating the top halves.
