Inspired by the necklaces I saw in the city by Accessorize and since I bought 3 bobbins of white cotton thread for 1 euro lately, I decided to interpret it my way. If you want to reproduce it, follow this instructions:
- at least 2 bobbins of white cotton thread
- nice pearls for the front of the necklace
- thin black ribbon
- 2 big metallic links
- 2 little metallic rings which can be opened with a pair of pliers
- a clasp
- a bit of a little metallic string
- a pair of pliers
- thin transparent plastic thread
- a lighter
- a sewing needle
- for a 45cm long necklace, cut 30 times 75cm long white cotton thread parts. You will obtain one of the three bonds you need for the plait. So repeat it 2 times.
- Fix those three parts to one of the big metallic rings.
- plait and fix the end of the plait to the second big ring.
- you can already settle the clasp with a little metallic ring to one of the extremity of the necklace, and the chain to the other with another metallic ring. The base of the necklace is done.
- Fix the black ribbon where you wish it begins, and wind it around the plait. I fixed the black ribbon with thin transparent plastic thread as on the following picture, and burned the end of the plastic thread with a lighter (caution, the cotton thread is inflammable!)
- Now sew the pearls on the middle of the necklace.
You are done!
