So many of us are used to the normal short necklace, owing to the fact that it is what is sold around us. Although there are longer necklaces, but these are not as common as the short ones. The Bolo tie necklace is one of the long necklaces we have.
Worn pulled up against a buttoned up collared shirt or loose as a necklace, bolos are our must have accessory of the moment. Trust me, the Bolo tie necklace is very easy to make; you need not wait until you buy one before you can rock yours. Be a trend setter by making and rocking your own Bolo tie necklace. Set the pace with this Bolo tie necklace;
Materials needed to make your Bolo tie are;
- Cutting board
- Sharp knife, drill
- Tapered stopper cork
- Super glue
- Leather or suede cord (40 inches)
- Button earring
- Open-acorn push nut
- Pair of closed-acorn push nuts
The first process involves cutting about one-third (1/3) of the cork off, lengthwise. Then drill two holes at an angle on the top side of the cork, exiting out the same centered hole on the opposite side. when you are done, run the drill through the holes a few times in order to clean out any excess cork. Thread each end of the leather cord through the top of the cork, pulling the ends out the bottom.
Continue by threading both ends of the cord through the open acorn nut, using a safety pin to help thread it through. Then push the acorn nut flush against the bottom of the cork, cap the tips of the cord by filling the insides of each of the closed nuts with super glue and twisting the tips into them. At this stage, you can now decorate the bolo by sticking an earring or brooch into the center of the cork.
