Here are the materials I used for this statement necklace:

-magnetic clasp
-faux stone cabochon
-flat aluminium wire

Start by placing the cords the way you like. The two smaller pieces were the same length and I used the black one as the primary color. It’s hard to keep them in place so add a dab of glue between them to make it easier.

Then cut two pieces of your wire and use it to wrap the cords together so they stay together. You can wrap that wire with your hands, it’s very flexible. Just make sure to tack the ends nicely at the back using pliers.

Now glue the cabochon in the middle.

Finally you’ll need to glue the clasp. The ends of this cord fray easily so to be able to fit them in the clasp a good trick is to cover them with some tape first.

Glue them, let it dry and you are ready!
