I made a new necklace using silk ribbon and pearls, which I hinted at earlier. I made this necklace for my mother. I modified the design from a project in Stringing Magazine (Summer 2011).
I used vintage chain from the 1960s, a repurposed strand of pearls, and recycled silk sari ribbon. I created a pendant from a vintage earring by removing the clip on back and wire wrapping it.
I wire wrapped the silk ribbon to keep the pendants in place and also as a way to attach jump rings to the ends.
I am not certain if I like the way it looks on though. It may need some more work? Thoughts?
Even though I am WAY over budget this month today I am checking out a bead store I’ve never been to, even though it is very close to me.
