I’ve been ripping silk again! 🙂

I had another scarf in my drawer that I love the colours of, the shape not so much. So I decided to rip it in half lengthways, then I tied two of the ends together in a pretty way. That gives me a long scarf that I can drape around myself in a number of ways.

Because I had ripped it in the centre I ripped both of the end seams off to, to make it the same everywhere. As soon as I did, I saw that I had really cool, colourful necklace cords. Bonus!

I had fun finding some fun, colourful elements and beads in my stash to complement the pretty silk cords.

I doubled up the cord for the largest pendant, which had been an enamel earring, embellished by moi. The other two elements were a bit smaller, so just needed a single strand. The one that looks like a teardrop crystal (it’s glass), was an earring as well, and the light pink flower with the fuschia sparkly centre was a connector.

These were so fun to make, and a good way to use up bits and pieces. I’ll be on the lookout for more silk scarves! 🙂
