This simple necklace is a statement piece that's very easy to make, and can be molded into unlimited shapes. 
I used a thick cord, but this process works great on yarn, or even embroidery thread.

You'll Need:
01.  Cord (about 30-40") & Scissors
02.  Beeswax, vessel to melt in
03.  Fabric Dye
04. Clothespin & Line to hang dry
05. (Optional) Thread or beads as details

Step 1: Prepare the Cord

Trim your cord to the desired length, leaving a couple extra inches for the knots. I used a fisherman's knot so that the length is adjustable, but any knot will work. 
This looks like a fun project! Thanks for sharing! <br>sunshiine
The wax can be shaped before or after it has dried. I prefer to wait until it was set up a little bit, to avoid finger prints
Cool idea! The one in the main image seems to be stiffened into another shape. Did you dip it in wax and then make it dry in a certain shape?
