Threads: New Pink Necklace

I just finished a new silk necklace. This one is light pink silk crepe, and I tried a little something different this time…

Here’s how it went:

First, I cut the fabric into strips, folded it over and sewed the open edge to make a tube.

Next, I pulled jewelry wire through the fabric and began adding wooden beads, knotting the fabric between each bead.

I stopped after several inches and tried out a new technique.

I twisted the rest of the fabric a little on each side and wrapped it with light grey thread, starting from the bottom of the necklace by the last knot, going up to the end, and then back down again.

Finished off the back with a little asymmetrical beading…
