Flower Pendant

Flower Pendant

Description: This Flower Pendant features loops of one color along the edges (petals). A second color is added for contrast.

The ends of the two cords can be used to make your favorite necklace design when you are finished making this unique pendant.

The decorative knot used is a variation of the technique called Endless Falls. Click on the link to view that page. 

The difference is that you alternate front to back with each knot, and use only one cord to make the loops.

This is a really interesting knotting technique, and I recommend you experiment with it. You could use this knot pattern to make a belt, bracelet, or even a pet collar.

With the right material, a choker style necklace can also be made.


This design is on the Fusion Knots website, under the name "Desert Flower Medallion."

The design described below has been changed slightly from the original, but the overall process is the same.

Supplies Needed:

  • 2mm to 4mm cord material (two colors)
  • Project Board and pins

Step 1: Cut 2 cords to at least 90 inches, if you plan to use both of them for the necklace. 

Remember that the cords will be folded, so you will have four cords to create the necklace (two on each side).

To make a necklace using only two cords, cut the Color B cord to 45 inches.

Color A (working cord) should be at least 90 inches. 

Color B will be finished off when the Flower Pendant is completed.
Fold Both Cords  

Fold the working cord in half (color A) and secure it at the center.

Secure the color B cord under the working cord, matching the centers.


Cross Left Over Right  

Step 2: Cross the ends of the color B cord, left over right.

You can cross the other direction, but make sure you are consistent all the way through the design.


Use Left End For Loop  

Step 3: Move the left half of the working cord over the front of the crossed area made by the color B cord.

Bring it down between the two halves of the working cord.


Make the Loop Smaller  

Step 4: Tighten the knot by pulling on the left half of the color A cord first. Tighten color B by pulling on each end.

Reduce the size of the loop at the top to 1/4-inch by pulling on the right half of the working cord.



Design Tip: The size of the loop depends on the material you are using.

The loop only needs to be large enough for two ends to pass through it, so make it as small as possible.


Flip Design Over  

Step 5: Flip the design so you are working in the back.

Repeat steps 2 - 4, tightening the second knot so it's close to the back of the first one.

Flip the knot again, and repeat.


Step 5, continued:  As you continue making the Flower Pendant, always use the left half of the working cord to make the loops.

This will ensure the pattern alternates properly.

3 Inches of Knots  

Step 6: Repeat steps 2 - 5 several times, until the sennit is 3 inches long.

This will give you a 1.5-inch pendant, since you will be folding it into a circle.

Design Tip:  You can make the pendant any size, simply by changing the overall size of the sennit.

Sides Face Up and Down  

Turn the sennit so V-shapes formed by color B are face up, with the color A loops along the sides.


Pass Ends Thru Loop   Step 7: Pass the two ends of the working cord through the loop you left at the other end.

Pull them snugly to form the circular shape.

Cross Ends of 2nd Cord  

Step 8: Turn the Flower Pendant sideways slightly, so you have access to both cords again.

Cross the ends of the color B cord over the working cords, as you did before.


Use BOTH Ends to Make Loops  

Step 9: Use both ends of the working cord to make the final loops. The process is the same:

Bring them over the crossed area, and down behind it, passing between the two halves.

Completed Pendant  

Step 10: Pull all four ends firmly to tighten.

You can now use the 4 ends to make the necklace, or weave 2 of them into the back of the pendant to finish them off.
