Awesome guest tutorial: Anthro-pretty necklace by Mary Ann
Love the Christian Louboutin-inspired pumps with chiffon floofies she made:
This necklace consists of velvet ribbon I recently purchased and little bits and pieces from a craft box that belonged to my grandmother. I've gone through this box multiple times, but haven't found a use for any of the contents, until today! ;-)
Ribbon (apprx. a yard or so, I used less)
Random bits of chain (I used old eye-glasses chains)
Random connector bits (I used these old brass filigree things)
Some jump rings
The pearl chain was in bits and pieces, so I connected them together with pliers.
Connect chains to filigree (I used old jump rings from leftover parts from that craft box).
Loop ribbon onto other filigree.
Tie other ends of ribbon onto the first filigree.
I decided I wanted to add another filigree, so I undid the chain jump rings, and added on a new connector with another jump ring.
I redid Step 3.
Connect other ends of chain to other filigree, varying the lengths.
And that's it! Made from all repurposed supplies, I didn't have to buy anything at the store!
Isn't it pretty? I don't do much jewelry-making, myself, so I loved that Mary Ann made it look so easy and fun!
