Sorry the photos are less than stellar, but don't get me started on THAT......
The necklace is made with silk dupioni ribbon which looks nicely frayed as it wears. The tutorial used 12 beads, but I'm stumped after 2. I think I'll add some vintage-inspired charms instead of beads. I should have it finished by tomorrow and I'll post it for sure.
The only problem I had with making it is that I found it really hard to close the end bars which hold the ribbon. These are made of antique brass and I had a really hard time trying to get them totally closed around the ribbon. I used my chain nose pliers as they suggested but it didn't work so well for me....Any suggestions?
Time for a tivo'd "24" with the hubby. Ciao.
