Holiday Rocks Lariat Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Use 2-part epoxy to secure the flames to the flame frames. Allow to cure.
Cut leather to desired length and attach coil ends with hypo cement. For extra security bend last coil into leather cord.
Attach hammertone link with a lark's head knot (see example of both sides below).
Make wire wrapped connector with fine rocks tube bead and lotus bead caps. Wrap directly to coil end and to flame charm. Crimp pliers are great for tucking the end of the wire wrap in place. For step-by-step instructions on making wire-wrapped loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 (PDF).
