I've been gone from Craftster for sometime! I thought it was about time to post something!

I came across a picture of a similar necklace, and decided to try it myself. It was VERY hard, finding the proper wooden beads, but I did eventually find some! I think next time, I'll use a size smaller bead too, for variation. But hey, I think it turned out really well!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

I love this!  Once upon a time I did something similar, but I prefer how you have variations in the fabric!  Cheesy

I agree I like your variation. It gives the necklace more to look at when you have variation like this.

What type of adhesive do you use between the wood and fabric? How do you keep the adhesive from seeping through the fabric?

Great work! Smiley

Well thanks so much! Smiley

I just used a fabric glue called liquid stitch, I would've probably used modge podge if I had some on hand. I'm sure mostly any sort of glue would work, but fabric glue will probably work best. And I guess it was just the glue I used, to stop it from seeping. Just a thin lather will really hold it! That's all you need! Smiley Hope that helped some
