Monthly DIY: Iz's Pearl Ribboned Necklace

Necklace: Rada for Anthropologie 6 strands pearl necklace

Two years ago I was inspired by all the ribboned necklaces I was seeing everywhere.  I know Maigen has as well since she wore one herself! :) 

I had pearl necklaces given to me by mom, aunts, and grandmas just sitting unused because I didn't want to be such a southern belle traditionalist.  Finally, I tackled an updated look using only two things!  Some black ribbon and a long strand of pearls that can be looped around multiple times.  Easy!  

* I tied the weaving ribbon end to the neckline ribbon end into a bow.  
You can take it further by adding actual jewelry hooks and rings to attach the ribbon to the pearls, but I wanted mine quick :)  Next time, I might rearrange this exact necklace and take two strands and interlink them together like the duo tone top picture.  That would look so classy cute!

Who's going to try this?!

Girl, you are on fire with the DIY projects! And they all turn out so cute!

I love your necklace! (All of the necklaces in this post are cute... I have the Anthro one in coral/orange. I was debating between the one I got and the one in the pic! I wish I got both, the aqua one is gorgeous!)

We should have a DIY jewelry or something session sometime during a blog meeting!
