If you popped by on Wednesday you will have seen this picture.
I didn't really know what I was going to do when I started. I had the basic idea of hanging beads from the loopy bits of the cord/lace and attaching that to a wider piece of ribbon to wear as a choker.
It turns out if you attach things directly to the loops they pull. I find sewing in to satin ribbon is not easy. So I attached the loopy cord to some grosgrain, just a few random stitches in black thread so it is not visible.
Then I did my beady thing and made some head pins with swarovski crystals and attached them to the grosgrain through the loops. The loops aren't taking the weight of the dangles, the grosgrain is doing all the supporting.
Then I strung some matte black seed beads and looped them between the swarovskis. Again I made sure the grosgrain was taking the weight.
Spot the mistake?! I can count, honestly. I don't think it matters that much...
I backed the decorated grosgrain to another length and tried to stitch them together with out it showing. Fail. In the end I undid all the stitching and used a length of double sided super sticky tape!! It worked well and gave the necklace a bit more structure too.
I'm linking up with Inspire Me Fridays @ Maria's (loads of good stuff there this week!)
