Project Map

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Kate’s knotting expertise reaches new heights with this gorgeous boho earring style. Also called a Pipa Knot, the Teardrop Knot technique is taught in this video. As you can see from our Project Map, you can easily adapt and embellish with a variety of beads and cords! Please note: The O Beads are a tight fit!! Use 1mm leather if you're adding them...and if you want a thicker leather, switch out O Beads for some heishi!
