lubee & pucchimaiko:   when i got the necklace to the length i wanted, i tucked the ends of the fabric tube to the inside.  then i took my needle & thread, and stitched all the way around & pulled it tight to gather it in.  then for the clasp, i just stitched the ring part to the fabric.  i think next time i will probably use a nicer clasp, but i didn't have one handy when i made these.
and pucchimaiko, i love shibori too.  your necklaces look really nice!

anyone planning to sell these necklaces?  i thought i might try, but i haven't decided on a price.  any suggestions?

well, there are a few different ways of making these necklaces...some have used beads inbetween the fabric covered beads, some have tied knots, i chose to stitch and wrap thread inbetween.  then when i got to the end, i stitched the ends in to finish them off, and stitched the clasp on as well.  you can certainly make one without any stitching, but i'm not sure how you would attach a clasp without stitching it on.  hope that helps.  Smiley

I think when i make these, I;m going to do a ribbon closure and just thread a thin strip of ribbon hrugh the tube before I do the beads, so that the ribbon goesinside the beads inside the tube. Does that make sense? then I'll stitch at eathier end to hold the ribbon in place. Just an idea.

thanks, i am soo happy that it turned out so well, i wore it yesterdayy and got tons of compliments! Smiley next i will do some thrift shopping and find some lovely silky scarfs...

i actually made the wire part separately with the pliers and slipped it on, otherwise it would not look so even.
