I am a lover of peach. Peach and champagne - even better. I love this necklace and it really is quite simple and easy to do. I know that since I put my original post up for 24 Days of Girly Glam, you all have been waiting for this lovely necklace. I didn't want to wait until the end, so here it is!
Embroidery thread (DMC 5)
Apprx 40 glass pearls (8mm)
2 yards 3/8" ribbon
Button (optional for closure)
Elastic cord (optional for closure)
You are going to start the beading on the side with your tail, so bring your thread back through. This side below will be facing out (people will see it).
I've twisted the strand here so you can see how the ribbon lays nicely across the pearl.
When you get to the length of twisted pearls that you like, end it by bringing up a tail of ribbon without placing a pearl. You want to finish it such that the orientation of the finish is similar to the way you started so that the necklace lays nicely on the neck.
Tie the ends of your 10" ribbon tails together.
Tie and trim the other side so the ends match.
From the outside, the elastic looks like this:
Don't you just want to make a ton of these?
My daughter just asked for another ring - never fear, one's a coming. Maybe not tomorrow but in a couple of days . . .
