When I was organizing all of my ribbon and trimming, some vintage tan seam tape caught my eye. It got me thinking about a box of mother of pearl buttons I had stashed away. I got them all out, as well as some iridescent beads, and decided there had to be a way to make some jewelry out of all these pretty bits and pieces.
First, I took one of my buttons (don’t they remind you of snowflakes?) And sewed/tied it to the middle of a long length of seam tape.
To finish the look, I sewed a small iridescent bead to the center of my seam tape loop. I also wrapped some of the lacy tape around two beads on each side of the necklace and sewed the tape shut around the beads. I didn’t have any jewelry clasps on hand, so I just left the tails of the necklace long so I can tie the ends in a bow behind my neck.
