I saw this awesome necklace while browsing Look magazine a few weeks ago. Much as I loved it I though £18 was a but steep for effectively a gold plated necklace and some embroidery thread. So I thought I put one together myself.
All you need is:
Gold necklace – I got mine for £2 in Primark
Glue – I only had PVC to hand but you’d be better with superglue
I started by wrapping the black thread around the top of the chain in the middle section. I used a little dot of glue to hold it in place to start and finish.
I made my tassels using a pretty convoluted method. There’s a much better one here, just add the jump ring instead of a pencil. I then attached a jump ring to my chain and the tasselled jump ring to that. Ta Da!
Oh I almost forgot I loosened all the threads in my tassels to make them, let’s say fluffier.
