I had so much fun with the Ribbon and Jump Rings
necklace I shared last week that when I found myself at Michaels again this weekend ( they really need to give me my own parking space) I went looking for another one of the ribbon necklaces I used.
No more black ( eeek! boo! it’s my signature color!) but they had the same one in cream so I decided to branch out! Hello , my name is Carol and I’m a neutral-holic.
I also picked up a package of these Trinkettes beads by Cousin (fear not colorful people they come in loads of colors) and while I was scrounging around in the clearance bin again, came across these gorgeous amber-crystal-cabochony thingies. $1.99. SCORE.
Similar to the black necklace I made, I strung large jump rings onto the ribbon necklace, over all of the layers.
Total number of jump rings: 11 It made sense to me to have 5 on each side and one in the middle. No reason other than that's what felt right. You could use more. You could use less.
Then I put some of the Trinkettes beads on some of the large jump rings and the amber cabochony thingies on other jump rings and used smaller jump rings to attach everything together. I’m very technical! Seriously. This is super super easy and there are several different types of ribbon necklaces avail even if you don’t find this exact one by Bead Landing because I bought them all.
Cabochony thingy, Trinkettes beads, cabochony thingy Trinkettes etc.
Look Mom, I didn’t even use the black beads ( YET!). And yes I did drive to another Michaels looking for another black ribbon necklace. No luck. There’s another Michaels I’m checking out this weekend. Sssssshhhhhh.
So very clever and beautiful!
I love it Carol. Yep, 11 is a good number.
So pretty! I love black, too - but color is the spice.
Nice blog ,thanks for information...

Gorgeous, Carol!! I'm glad they didn't have black because I'm loving the cream! ;)
11 sounds like a good number to me and it looks fabulous. :)
Such a beautiful necklace, Carol! It's elegant, original, and one I feel confident that I could handle making.
I love this necklace. You are so creative. I am definitely not a crafter like you but I wish I could make one of these! Beautiful!
Wow, this is beautiful!
Lovely - easy + pretty are two of my favorite things when it comes to jewelry making.
