    Let dry, and apply additional coats of polish or paint as needed.

    Line up your fringe with the necklace to determine how much you need. I decided on about 8 1/2 inches.

    To trim down the light teal fringe, I taped down the top of the fringe, and then placed a second piece of tape across the fringe strands. Using scissors, I cut along the second piece of tape. Line up the trim and necklace again. Thread a needle with a matching color of thread, embroidery floss, or even clear fishing line or bead string.

    Knot the thread, and push needle through both layers of trim and under the necklace. Tie the thread to the necklace. Continue to sew the fringe to the necklace, creating stitches that loop in between the small jewels of the necklace.
