Minimalist leather and silver string necklace by Hang Ups Jewelry
String pendants are a fun and versatile way to add a touch of personalization to any outfit. These necklaces can be made with a variety of materials, making them easy to customize and create. Whether you’re looking for something simple and subtle or something bright and bold, there are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to making your own string pendant.
Chokers with sliding knots
The first type of string pendant necklace is the choker necklace. Choker necklaces are short necklaces that fit snugly around the neck and feature a variety of charms, beads, or other trinkets strung on a single strand of string or cord.
Chokers look great with both casual and dressy outfits, and they’re perfect for making a statement with minimal effort.
The hardest part about DIYing a choker string necklace is getting the size right - which, in fact, you don’t have to. There is a technique of tying the string in a way that will leave the size of the choker adjustable. Watch the YouTube tutorial below:
Lariat string necklaces
The next type of string pendant necklace is the lariat necklace.
This type of necklace features a long strand of string or cord with an end loop that can be worn in different ways. For example, the loop can be used to hold a charm or pendant, or it can be wrapped around the neck multiple times for a layered look.
The lariat necklace is one of the easiest ones to DIY because you do not have to worry about buckles or sizing knots. The lariat necklace holds by itself, making a clever use of the charms that are on it.
Tassel pendant necklace (The Easiest)
Before we move on to gem pendants, the next easy type of string pendant is the tassel necklace.
Tassel is essentially the easiest type of macrame. These necklaces feature colorful tassels that are strung together on a single strand of string or cord.
Tassel necklaces look great with softcore outfits and can be customized with different colors and sizes of tassels for an extra-personalized touch.
Pendant necklaces with charms or gems
Another type of string pendant is the charm necklace. These necklaces consist of charms that are hung on a single string or cord.

Depending on the aesthetic you are going for, you may or mey not get away with just tying the string together by way of finishing. But it is neater to use the sliding knot as is used with chokers.
Charms come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so you can make your own unique charm necklace that reflects your personality. Charms can also be used to symbolize special milestones or events, making them a meaningful addition to any outfit.
A similar type of string pendant is the gemstone necklace. These necklaces consist of colorful gemstones strung together on a single strand of string or cord. Gemstone necklaces are perfect for adding a touch of sparkle to any outfit and look great paired with both casual and dressy outfits.
The next type of string pendant is the classic bead necklace. This type of pendant is made with colorful beads strung together on a single strand of string or cord, and a pendant in the middle.
Bead necklaces are easy to make and can be customized with any color or size of bead, but they do need a buckle. This makes the beaded pendant necklace the hardest to DIY.
They look great with the coconut girl aesthetic, though.
No matter what type of string pendant you decide to make, it’s sure to add an extra touch of personality to your outfit. From classic bead necklaces to tassel necklaces, these easy-to-make accessories are perfect for showing off your unique style. So grab some string or cord and get creative!
