Cut 160cm of leather cord, slide one Swarovski pendant article 6620 40mm crystal zebra onto it. Adjust the pendant so that one end of the cord is 95cm and the other end is 50cm long. Tie a knot is the cord as shown.

Slide the longer end (95cm) through the front hole of the pendant towards the back making a loop of 80cm at the top and the remaining 15cm will be behind the pendant. Hold the 15cm end with your fingers and start wrapping the 50cm cord end tightly around the knot and the pendant as shown in the illustrations.

Tie a knot behind the pendant with the two remaining thread ends. Cut them off to the lengths of 4cm and 5cm.

Cut a 50cm cord and slide one Swarovski pendant article 6620 20mm marbled black onto it. The pendant should be placed in such a way that 30cm of cord end is on the front side and 20cm of cord is on the back side. Make a loop using the 20cm cord end at the back side of the pendant. Hold this end with your fingers and start wrapping the longer end (30cm) around the pendant and the loop. Tie a knot using both thread ends at the back of the pendant. Cut them off at different lengths as shown in the illustrations.

Cut a 5cm chain and attach it in the cord loop from the pendant made in Step 4 using a 6mm jumpring.

Attach the smaller pendant with the chain into the cord of the bigger pendant using a 4mm jumpring as shown.
