Ribbon Necklace!




Hello, it's Connie! I am so excited to share my project with you today! I was at a popular accessories store a couple of months ago, where I saw a necklace made out of ribbon, and I thought...I could do that! So here is what I came up with!

I started with three strands of the pink organza ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. I added the broach on all three pieces of ribbon. I then put different beads, a black bead, a larger pink bead and an iridescent teardrop bead each to one of the three ribbons about an 1 1/2" apart. Once I added all the beads, I then loosely braided the ribbon strands together, and capped off the ends with special ribbon clasps!

This was my first time making a necklace with ribbon, and did not think to take pictures of it as I was going along. If you would like, next time I will try to put together a little tutorial for you all!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Connie

  3. What a stunning necklace.Great idea:) I wonder if it would work with smaller beads and sewing them on the ribbon then braiding? Have you ever tried that?
