Posted: My pendant arrived and its nice (thanks hop, nick and alex)
What is the best way of securing it? Obviously if you tie a knot in it it leaves the string dangling and looks a bit crap. I dont want it hanging right down when tied at the ends, more on my collar bone.
Should I just knot it then cut the ends off or get a clasp?
ps. i have never worn a necklace or any jewelry for that matter!

Posted: There is a way to create an adjustable knot. Each loos end is tied to the string and you can slide it back and forth to loosen/tighten it as needed.
Posted: Hi, Geeza. If you search for "double fisherman's knot" on YouTube, there's a very clear video with directions. Here's a link:
This knot works well in round leather cord, satin cord, and any other firmly twisted or braided cord. Just make sure the necklace still goes over your head after you've tied the knots. Then slide one of the knots down the cord until the pendant sits where you want it, and then slide the second knot far enough so that the 2 cords at the back are the same length. You can trim the ends or else tighten the knots in such a way that the ends are quite short. If the cord is nylon or some other material that melts, you can melt the end to prevent fraying. Hope this helps (and makes sense)!
