Incredibly simple ribbon necklace with endless possibilities.
This is a simple necklace and the options are limitless. I chose a light blue ribbon with dark, chocolate brown color on the other side which allows me to switch to whichever color I want to show on a particular day. I originally attached the glass pendant using some copper jump rings I made, but I found them to be to distracting and took them off. For the how-to pics, I made another similar necklace using sheer ribbon.

    Step 1

    Attach jump rings and necklace clasp to each ribbon crimp. Cut ribbon to the size you need. I wanted a short necklace, but longer than a choker, so I cut my ribbon to 20 inches. Be sure to take into account how much length the jump rings and clasp will add to the finished product. The picture shows just how much the finishings can add: in this case, almost 1 1/2 inches.

    Slide the pendant onto the ribbon. Glass pendants come have their own holes for stringing, but the sizes can vary. Keep that in mind when choosing ribbon width and pendants.

    Coat the ends of the ribbon with Fray Check and let it dry. Alternatively, you can singe the ends of most ribbons, carefully, with a lighter. The photo shows the end of the ribbon singed.

    Place one end of the ribbon into one ribbon crimp. Add glue, if desired, and than use pliers to squeeze crimp completely closed. Repeat on the other side. Let glue dry if used. I used a Jewelry Embellishment glue that allows fabrics to be glued to smooth surfaces such as metal. The photo shows what the necklace should look like after the gluing and crimping.
