Flowy fringe is in style, and we got you a fun and easy project thats perfect if you love bold jewelry and fiber. In a couple minutes you can make yourself a beautiful flowy piece to wear around your neck and add some spice to your outfit.
You will need:
- Pearl cotton thread
- 18 gauge brass wire
- Ultimate adhesive or glue gun
- 4 Jump rings
- Jewelry clasp
- Jewelry chain
- Measuring stick
- Jewelry pliers, cutters, round nose pliers
Step 1: Take the brass wire and cut 6 inches with your jewelry cutter.
Step 2: With your hands mold the brass wire into a semi-circle. If you need help molding the wire you can wrap it on something round, like a jar or a can.
Step 3 : Using the round nose plier, create a loop on both ends of the wire- carefully wrap the ends around the tip/middle of the round nose plier.
Step 4: Take the Pearl cotton thread and cut in right in the middle and divide the thread into 4 different bundles.
Step 5: Now its time to attach the thread onto the brass wire. Take a bundle of the thread and attach it to the brass by doing a larks knot- Fold the bundle of thread and place it under the brass, the folded area should be a the bottom and the ends at the top. Bring both ends over the brass, heading downward. Then pass them under the folded area and pull firmly.
Step 6: Attach all 4 bundles onto the brass using a larks knot. Once you have attached all 4 pieces, take your glue or hot glue gun and drop a small amount of glue on the back of the knot, in-between the thread. Doing this well ensure that the thread won’t come loose.
Step 7: Once the glue has completely dried, trim the ends of the fringe with a pair of scissors. You can decide how long of short you want the fringe to lay.
Step 8: Decide how long you want the necklace to lay and cut 2 pieces of the chain. Now attach the brass fringe to the chain by connecting the ends with a jump ring, and use the pliers to close the ring.
Step 9: At the end of the chain attach the jewelry clasp with a jump ring, and then attach the ring on the other chain.
Enjoy your new fringe statement piece! Happy crafting!
