We've hit day 5 of Jewelry Week with myself and Bev from Flamingo Toes!
I hope you've enjoyed this week of tutorials.
I know I've loved sharing them with you!
Now I'm going to confess something right up front...
I'm not in love with this piece!
I think it has potential, and needs just the right shirt to go with it.
Lace (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
Needle and 2-3 strands of embroidery floss
The first thing to do is make the base of the necklace so trim your chain to the desired length (mine was ~21"). Attach your necklace clasp using the jump rings.
Now to attach the lace to the chain!
1. Tie a knot with the embroidery floss around the end of the chain and the end of the lace.
2. Begin threading the floss through the chain and the lace working your way down.
Continue until you reach the other end of the chain.
3. Knot the other end of the chain then take the floss back through the threading.
Trim off the excess.
Repeat with the other end of the chain to hide the excess thread from making a knot.
Fold the necklace in half to find the middle.
Find the pattern in your lace and cut it in half as close to the center of the necklace as you can get.
You can see in the photo on the right, the right side of the necklace is slightly shorter than the left so that I could center my cut.
The next step will depend on what the lace you are working with looks like.
I did not want square ends so I trimmed it into something softer.
So trim as you see fit.
But I want to know...
What would you wear with this collar necklace?
I need some fashion help!
Definitely check out Bev's Pompearl Necklace Knockoff!
She is ending Jewelry Week with a bang!
