1mm leather cord, eight lampglass cube beads, cord ends, jump rings, silver plated magnetic clasp. Board and bulldog clip to hold the macrame during production.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Space the beads carefully - calculate the length of the finished necklace, how many beads there are and how long your knots are !
