The necklace is quite simple. It's just flat netting all the way long. You can make it as long as you wish - it will depend only on how you want to use it. I wanted to use mine in this style:

So I made the chain measuring 53 inches (1.34 meter) long. It was a time consuming project, but I found it very relaxing because I didn't have to think much about what I was doing.
I did the chain with C-lon thread size D and 40 grams of Czech seed beads size 11/0.
The book doesn't teach you how to finish the necklace or how to add any embellishment. I finished my lariat by adding a loop of 9 beads at each end. I also created simple fringes with seed beads size 11/0 and 8/0, 8 mm crystals rondelles, and large rose quartz chip stones. Because the chips are a bit heavy, I used illusion cord 0.20 mm. The fringes measure about 2.5 inches (6.4 centimeters) long.
