Do you have some big hole beads you don't know what to do with? Well, team them up with paracord! This woven paracard necklace with big hole beads tutorial is by Tarun Upadyaya over on Instructables. He called it an ethnic necklace "because it resembles Indian ethnic jewelry which is popular and worn over traditional saree dresses." But the bold style will also suit plain dresses.
He made wire coils to secure the ends of the woven section. One suggestion is to use thicker wire. I prefer thicker wire because the coils look better.
One of his options for finishing the necklace is to use adjustable knots as shown in his tutorial for a paracord pipa knot necklace and matching earrings. You could also use wire coils for the necklace ends as shown in my past tutorial.
