Pearls are so classic that I feel that every woman should own a pearl necklace. That being said, I feel like they can be a little updated from our grandma’s pearl necklaces. Last year I bought the pearl and ribbon necklace below for my bridesmaids as a gift from Etsy.
They are so classic and elegant but I wanted something with a little more statement and a bit trendier. So, I started on my pearl necklace quest and found a long strand of pearls at Marshalls and instantly knew I could make something cool with them. I decided to add a little ribbon and this was the outcome.
It was so easy to make and I love it. I can easily add a broach if I feel like I want a little more bling or I can leave it the way it is for a go-to necklace for work. Here is what you need to know if you want to make a ribbon pearl necklace of your own!
Materials needed: Long pearl necklace, ribbon, scissors, that’s it!
Step two: At both ends of the necklace double knot an equal length of ribbon creating a two ribbon strand.
Step three: Measure out necklace length and cut the ribbon to your desired length.
Step four: Tie a bow for the clasp, don it, and make a pearl statement!
