Cute cute, my sister has one of these and i believe she paid like 38 bucks for it! ouch!
just one question - does any type of fabric work for this? or do you need some that's stretchy or anything?

I will be out of state until February. I may be able to check emails periodically so if you need me, it would be more timely to email me. Thanks. ANY OWED SWAP PACKAGES WILL GO OUT BEFORE I LEAVE.

I have to say--this is one of my favorite jewelry tutorials I've found on here. I love these type of necklaces, but I would never spend $20 or more on them. I'm very excited with what I made and I am planning on making many more.

The necklace:

I made my necklace using marbles instead of beads. They're not as heavy as you'd think and they work rather well. Grin

thanks so much for the tutorial! your necklaces are gorgeous.  i've seen these necklaces in stores too but didnt want to pay that much for them. i made mine a bit longer, with bigger "beads"(i used stuffing for pillows), and added some sequins

first one i made out of lily pulitzer fabric

second one out of some old white fabric


this is my first post. tell me what you think Smiley

These necklaces are so great. I was thinking to dress them up a bit you could use organza or tulle and pretty marbles that would show through. Just a thought.

I'd probably say necklaces like these are best with either low cut tops, where the necklace falls on your skin and not the top, or basic tops like the person above me said she wears hers.

ive definitely seen this stuff in vogue. im thinking i might fold trhe fabric ends under before sewing it to the ribbon for a neater finish.
