OK, I saw these in Urban Outfitters and made a variation of them using pearls. I have made them in every color with interchangeable ribbon.  It's an obsession and I wear one every day.  Someone told me the other day that i looked like I was wrapped up like a present.  I love love love them and they're so easy.  I buy packages of toggles and just use the ring part on the ends so you can interchange the ribbons.
 The pearls are 14mm glass pearls, kinda like Wilma Flintstone...

 ***someone asked me how I did the ends, so I thought I'd add a picture of the toggles.  The ones from Urban are strung differently and you can't change the ribbon.  I also just made this silver one with my new beads...

Didn't I see this on K8lyn's Web site, Craft X Core, or something by that name?

Yes! I didn't see that before.  The picture she posted is from the urban website.

may I ask where you found the large kind of fake (I'm assuming...) pearls?  I love the look but haven't been able to find them anywhere.  did you get them at a bead shop?  craft store?  online?

I get the big pearls (yes, they're fake! they're made of glass) from www.firemountaingems.com  They have GREAT prices on beads.  They're 14mm glass pearls, and they come with 2 strands for like $4 or something.  The black and white are $8.  Let me know if you order from there! It's a great site.

I am interested in making me a ribbon necklace.  I have never done anything like this and would like to get some input on how to go about this task.  for example, how and what do you string the beads on, how long is too long, where do you get the toggles, etc...

Please don't think I'm crazy, but i just can't see paying $40 for these necklaces, when I think I can make then myself.

Thanks for the nice post eeyorelover! I heart eeyore too Smiley

Agreed about paying $40, I see them everywhere around town right now and chuckle because mine only cost $4.  I string them on .5mm beading wire.  I make it just long enough to fit around my neck with the toggle loops on it.  I bought the toggles and ball caps at Michael's.  You can buy the toggles in a pack of 4 or so, and just use the ends with the loops.  Make sure you buy crimp beads, and then necklace won't fall apart.  Good luck. PM me if you get stuck.
