About two months ago I found a link on Rubyellen's blog for this necklace. I fell in love with it immediately. What a perfect use for fabric scraps! And the colors she used made me swoon. So pretty. I decided to try my hand at it and I really love the outcome. I made each of the strands using the same muted fabrics. But, I love the idea of making more of these using different colors and fabrics for each strand. Here is a bit of a closer shot of the braids. Each fabric seemed to turn to the reverse side as I braided, but it just added to the muted effect.
At the back of the necklace you sew all of the strands together. I decided to also add this button. Because, well, because I love buttons.
