Stevie at Moore Babies has an excellent tutorial on how to make a Ribbon & Pearl Necklace that I absolutely fell in love with and wanted to make one right away. While I have gobs and gobs of ribbon my bead selection is kind of blah but I also didn't want to go to the store. So I made do with what I had.
So this is Stevie's
And this is mine
When I started I wasn't sure if it would work with the supplies I had, but I think it turned out pretty good, and even better it cost me nothing!!
