Macrame Sea Glass Necklace This summer, wear your beach discoveries as jewelry! There are so many wonderful ideas using sea glass like this Seaglass Planter; recycling what the waves have recycled makes this project all the more meaningful and special. All it takes to get crafting this project is some beautiful sea glass pieces and cording to make this jewelry yourself!

Macrame Sea Glass Necklace
Anyone who can tie knots can make this macrame sea glass necklace. With plastic pollution increasing at an alarming rate, finding beautiful sea glass of different hues on beaches has become more and more difficult. This project gives an ideal way to use what little sea glass remains from beaches as a centerpiece necklace that you may never find again!

But instead, try purchasing sea glass at your craft store or online, or using painted rocks as an alternative material. A sea glass necklace would make an excellent craft project to do at a beach-themed party (perhaps after serving some beach cupcakes!).

Assemble Sea Glass Pieces to make Necklaces
*For smaller pieces of sea glass, consider using thinner cording; any similar cord will suffice (you could try embroidery thread as well, but its light knotting ability makes it impractical.). (Embroidery thread is another option but I find that knotting accurately takes more effort).

Create six 30-inch pieces of cording. If using painted river rocks instead of sea glass, I recommend cutting eight cording pieces, because jagged edges of sea glass make it easier to secure between fewer cording pieces.

Join all six pieces and knot at one end, leaving an inch or so of fringe at either side – this will form the base of your necklace.

Separate the six strands with the knot at the top of your workspace and pair each pair into three sets of two, tying knots about 1/2-inch (up to 3/4-inch for larger sea glass) from where they meet at the knot at the top.

Now, separate all six strands once again, creating pairs from one of each knotted pair and tie a knot half an inch away from its neighbors – meaning the far left and far right strand will now form one knotted pair each!
