This necklace is inspired by that famous scene in Gone With The Wind when our leading lady decides to turn the velvet drapes into a dress.
Even as I child I thought "why not."
Everything can be repurposed and refashioned.
So this necklace is what I would have made with the curtain tie backs.
This gorgeous tie back and tassel is only $5 in the John Bead Outlet.
I know. $5 is a steal.
I cut off several of the individual tassels. These already have a nice knotted loop I can add a jumpring through.
When I cut through fibers I wrap the area with tape so that everything does not unravel.
See, cut, secured and perfect.
Now the ends are easy to glue into an endcap. I use Beacon's Quick Grip because it absolutely works for these types of projects.
My last touch was to attach this $10 scarf bead from my local consignment store; My Sister's Closet Boutique.
Curtain tie back to necklace!
