Wife made a Braided Chinese Necklace Knot for one of my pendants. I like it. Too bad it takes a long time to make the ‘chain.’ Doesn’t seem feasble to make money off of with the time to make ratio. But makes great gifts.

Maple, Walnut and Paduak were used on the pendant.

Looks very nice.

If the necklace it too time intensive to be cost effective, just sell the pendant.

Thanks for sharing.

Great design! Looks to be about .25 thick? Good way to use scrap wood. How did you get the Paduak to glue up to the other woods? I’ve had a heck of a time gluing things to Paduak.

Massy, use some denatured alchohol on the sides you intend to glue. Let it evaporate and then glue it up soonest.

Russ, I have done the pendants with just a nice ‘rope’ from the Hobby Lobby jewelry department. I was just saying more about the intricate knot necklace my wife had done.

Thank you everyone. There are books on how to do a varied way of necklace knots at craft stores like Hobby Lobby.

This is very nice. I’d make the necklace much simpler. The pendant is great.

Pretty pendant! Like the attractive wood combo and patterns, awesome finish. Whatever necklace will be used, it will still make one notice the pendant.

Have your say...
