A while back I made some lace necklaces that I’m still fond of. Since they’re not complicated at all, I decided to share the tutorial with you, so you can make your own. The shabby look of the lace makes them perfect for spring – and what else could I be doing now, if not dreaming about spring? Hope you enjoy this!
What you need:
- a piece of lace (mine was cotton)
- scraps of colorful chiffon (or another synthetic fabric)
- 3 jump rings
- thread & needle or sewing machine
- lighter or candle
I started by cutting a piece of lace to the size I wanted the necklace to be. Then I placed it on a slightly larger piece of chiffon, and stitched them together. I cut the excessive fabric and used a lighter to prevent the edges from fraying. This is why the fabric needs to be synthetic.
Next, I passed the jump rings through the two fabrics, one at every side. Added about 10 cm of chain to each, and finished with a clasp. You can make the necklace even more romantic by stitching beads or hanging a charm in the lower half!
