Tools and Materials: Embroidery thread (I used about 9 skeins in a tonal range of pinks, coral, and fuschia) Needle Crystal/rhinestone necklace
I began by unwinding the skeins and making three bundles (of three skeins each), a little over three times the length of my necklace.

Continue until the braid is about 3 inches longer, on each end, from the necklace, then knot the loose strings. I trimmed down the remaining string on each ...
Next, I lined up the necklace with the braid, and made note of where I wanted the rhinestone necklace to become attached.
Thread up a needle with string, and tie the embroidery thread around some strings of the braid. I used the needle to sew the thread through the braid ...
With jump rings, attach to the string a larger ring and clasp. You're done!
