roses necklace


I've been having so much fun going through Kazmer's book 'Making Connections. One of the techniques discussed is how to make your own prongs for holding objects that don't have a hole in it. I couldn't wait to try it out, and i decided to use it on these pretty paper roses that my mom picked me up from germany. It took me a couple tries, but I eventually figured out the cutting of the tabs and how to correctly bend them to perfectly cradle the roses.
It was also my first time using both ribbon and 'chain' together as the necklace. I am pleased with how this one turned out, with a button added on the bottom to pull it down. Hope you like the little necklace i wanted to show you guys :).
In this lower picture, you can see the backs to the rose-holders.
