1. Necklace with ribbon
If you already have some beaded necklaces, you can simply update them by adding some pieces of ribbon as a new, more feminine fastening. However, if you don’t own such pieces, you can easily create some from scratch. You will need some beads, in a colour that you prefer, as well as a piece of ribbon in a colour or pattern that tickles your fancy. A great chromatic combination is beige beads and black ribbon, offering more class than any other colour combinations. Begin to insert your beads on the piece of ribbon and secure each of them by tying a knot before and after each one. Proceed like this until you reach the desired dimensions and there you have it, a brand new piece of jewellery create with your own hands and a minimum investment.
