I haven’t really made jewelry before.
I guess I have if you want to count what I made when I was in Junior High, but I’m not going to count that!
When I saw this beautiful necklace using Satin Ribbon, I HAD to try it out.
My mom’s birthday was coming up too,
so it gave me an awesome deadline to work with.
(Any one else love deadlines? If I don’t have a dead line, the supplies just sit there.)
First, I put together my beads.
This necklace takes 10 strands, about 8 – 9 inches long.
Then I sewed my satin ribbon together.
I used Antique Blue Double Faced Satin Ribbon in 1 1/2″.
This was the really hard part for me! As a nail biter, I have no nails. I ended using pliers to pull the ribbon inside out.
Another quick tip is to make sure you seal your ribbon ends. I kind of forgot since I wasn’t working with bows, but you definitely don’t want to forget this step.
Then I hand sewed the beads up inside the ribbon.
I think it turned out really pretty! And it looks even prettier on my mom.
This is another fun way to use Satin Ribbon, especially for the ladies.
Idea inspiration from Flamingo Toes.
