Fashionable Duct Tape Rope Necklace Tutorial

By on Friday, May 17, 2013 2 Comments

Tribal style jewelry has been a hot trend especially the kind that involves rope embellished with colored threads and/or metal tube beads.


Erica Domesek's super fast and awesome knot rope necklace tutorial eliminates the need to find a large hole metal tube bead because she used colored duct tape!  There are now all kinds of colors available in craft stores.

However, if duct tape does not appeal and you cannot find really large holed beads, hop over to your nearest hardware store and pick up some copper tubing from the plumbing department.  Failing that, coil wire of the right size to fit the ropes! Metal tubes and coiled wire sections need to fit snugly and with a little glue applied to keep them in place.

There is inevitably a solution for a lot of things, no?

  1. It looks cool but I can't really see using duct tape for a necklace. I do like the ideas of hitting up the hardware store though.

  2. As they say; where there's a will, there's a way. :)
    Love the idea of using copper tubing purchased at a hardware store - I really like the warm pinkish glow of copper.
