Supplies and Step 1:
1) For this project you need anamount of different fabric strips about 7-10 cm in length. I recommend you use tulle, sateen and organza for a more luxurious look.
2) A big chain because you are going to insert the strips through it.
3) Pearl beads and jump rings - the amount depends on your design. For reference, I used about 18 beads.
4) Not shown but necessary - a lobster clasp (optional: big jump rings), a hook or a tapestry needle.
When you have all strips cut out, singe them to stop fraying.
Next, positioning at the center and using a tapestry needle / hook, pull a strip through a chain and tie a knot. Tie another one in the next or the chain after that. From the center, work your way to the sides.
When all the strips are tied and you are satisfied with the fullness of the necklace, add the pearls. On a small jump ring I attached 3 different colored pearls and attached that jump ring onto the main chain (and between the strips). Added sets of such at the sides just a little above where the strips ended.
Finally, I added a couple of big jump rings to the chain, attached the clasp and the necklace is done!
