How to make the DIY wedding jewelry necklace?

Step 1: preparations

1. Take a fairly long strip of ribbon and fold it in half;

2. Tie an overhand knot, about 15cm from the folded position;

3. Hold the knot with fingers, next, flip one ribbon end along the diagonal. After that, turn down the other end so that you’ll get an overlapping cross pattern;

4. Take the nylon wire and needle and sew through them twice to secure in place. 

Step 2: add the pearls

1. String the 1st pearl and slide down to the base;

2. Take either of the ribbon ends and sew it to cover the bead;

3. Add on the 2nd pearl and cover with the other ribbon end;

4. Keep threading pearls onto the wire and cover them alternating with the two ribbon ends;


5. When you have reached the desired length, take the needle and thread back through the beaded part one more time.

6. Once you have finished the above process, anchor the wire and trim off the excess tail;

7. Tie another overhand knot at the other side for symmetry.


And there is your necklace!

Step 3: how to wear your necklace

Simply tie a bow with the leftover ribbon ends!
