I’ve been making these fabric-wrapped necklaces for about a year now. They’re nice to have on the table at art markets, and a great way to use up strips of pretty fabrics.

These are all made from silks, and the two-tone necklaces are made from chiffon. I use different beads inside them, but they’re mostly recycled Mardi Gras beads.

I don’t have any of these in my Etsy shop right now, but you can find them at Kiki Designs in Venice and Adorn & Conquer in New Orleans. Also I’m thinking about making a tutorial if there’s any interest in that…
