Ribbon & Pearl Necklace

Picture this if you will ... the house is quiet. Both girls are napping. The house is clean livable. I get the sudden urge to do something crafty!

Something that I've been dying to make is a ribbon and pearl necklace; more specifically an orange ribbon and pearl necklace to wear to Clemson Football game days! So off I run to my craft boxes to see what I can find.

I come up with some (craft) pearls and heavy duty thread that I used 2 years ago to make a pearl necklace that I could wear that wouldn't get destroyed by Charlottes grabbing hands during feeding time. I did not find any orange ribbon (boo), but I did come away with some polyester pink sheer-ish 3/8ths in ribbon.

It'll do. Besides, I need practice anyway, right?
I went for one of the zig-zag deals and came up with this:
And for a close up...

Not perfect, but I think it turned out pretty good for my first shot!
And here's me rocking my new necklace. By the way, I'm not gonna lie... that ribbon is REALLY itchy.

Keep an eye out later this week; I've already been to the store and gotten my satin orange ribbon! I'll take pictures and post some sort of tutorial! (Tutorial Here)
#14 Pearl and ribbon necklace on my "to-attempt" list completed! Woo hoo!
