Northcott Fabric Collar Necklace

I have a new special necklace to share.
It features fabric I received from Northcott.
In September I attended a Canada Sews meeting.  Northcott's marketing specialist Jennifer Brennan was present and she noticed right away that I was having difficulty returning the samples she passed around the room.
I mean really.  Look at this gorgeous grouping.
It is the Duchess collection and I don't remember ever seeing fabric this beautiful in one location.  How could I just hand it back?
When fabric is this gorgeous I think it should be turned into wearable art.  So I gathered some yo yo making supplies and made one from each piece of fabric.
My yo yos all turned out so pretty!
Then I lined some of the fabric with PHOOMPH and cut our circular discs.
The circle edges I beaded.
When my main collar was sewn together I knew I would need a bit of a cord to make it a finished necklace.  I gathered kumihimo cords in a colour palette to match.
The kumihimo cord makes this collar so easy to wear.
Love this fabric!  Thank you again Jennifer!


  1. So beautiful! I love your hand made necklaces Carmi. You also make such show stopping pieces. :)

  2. Yes, the fabric is certainly beautiful, but it's what you do with it that makes it so special this time!
