How to start making your own V-shape shirt collar necklace?
Step 1: Prepare two strands of chain
Remove two strands of chain to approximately 20~23cm long.
Step 2: Attach the bead tips to the lace trim
1st, pass the “box” of bead tip through the holes on border;
2nd, close the “boxes” by pinching with fingers;
3rd, stop when the length is as same as the prepared chain strand.
Step 3: Hook the chain links
1st, open the attachment loops, hook the chain links one by one (sometimes two hooks need to share one same chain link). Then, close the loops with pliers (or fingers);
2nd, remove the excess lace;
3rd, make another unit in same way.
Step 4: Add the satin ribbon
1st, cut a length of satin ribbon to approximately 70cm;
2nd, attach a short wire strand as needle. Then weave the starting 30cm ribbon through the chain link up and down;
3rd, take the 30cm ribbon on other end and weave through the second chain.
Step 5: Wear the lace collar necklace
Wear the collar necklace and then secure by tying a bowknot with excess ribbons.
Though it is tedious and time-consuming process to connect the chain and lace trim by using bead tips one by one, but if you get the hang of it, this will make a great help while making your own collar necklace.
