The meaning of the surf necklace

In the surf and beach culture of the 1970s, Southern California surfers began wearing a St. Christopher necklace as a symbol of good luck for their surf trips and swell -seeking adventures.

DIY Surfer Necklace Instructions

Here's how to make your first surfer necklace:

  1. Fold each colored string in half;
  2. Put all the embroidery strings together;
  3. Tie a knot at the top of the folded strings and secure it with tape to the table;
  4. Cut off the excess at the bottom so that all the colored strings are the same length;
  5. Start grabbing each colored thread and wrapping it around the others;
  6. To change the color pattern, find the next colored thread and start wrapping it around the other strings;
  7. Once you're done, create a small, loose loop with the last colored thread and pull it to make a tight knot;
  8. Make another loop and a second knot;
  9. Pass the clasp through the last colored thread;
  10. Tie a double knot to make sure it doesn't come undone;
  11. Repeat the previous knot to tie everything in place;
  12. Tie a final knot higher using the excess thread and cut the excess;
  13. On the other end of the necklace, pull one of the colored loops through the clasp;
  14. Take another string and tie a double knot to secure the clasp in place;
  15. Cut off the excess, and you're done;
  16. Remember that colors don't have to be the same length. You can display a two-inch navy blue followed by a one-inch light blue or mix several shades.

It's also up to you if you want them with different or similar lengths .

You can add one or more seashells , clamshells or vinyl disc beads to make it look even more surfy, summery and bohemian - just add them between steps 4 and 5.
