I love vintage, I love lace, I love beads
so I put all three together and came up with some pretty jewelry :)
And it's easy to make!
decorative lace trim
Okey dokey, here is what you will do...
Figure out the length you want for your necklace or bracelet.
You will want to cut a little extra.
Fold your lace in half according to the size of your beads
and sew together.
Place the beads in the sewn tube of lace
and find the middle of the lace with your tape measure.
Cut two pieces of thread and tie next the to bead.
Knot three times and keep the thread tight!
Do this until you have the amount of beads you desire for your necklace/bracelet.
The end result should look like this.
Now fold the ends in and trim so that it's straight.
Hand-sew the button snap onto the ends and you're finished.
~ Tip ~
If you make a necklace you can skip the button snap
and just tie the ends around your neck.
It looks cute either way :)
Everytime I have worn this necklace out in public
I have gotten many compliments.
I was at Hobby Lobby talking with the cashier and a customer
and they were asking how to make their own :)
It's a very eye-catching piece of jewelry.
