Introduction: How to Make a Silk Thread Necklace
There were some waste Silk threads taken from old Silk Sarees at home and I got some ideas to use that threads to make some crafts like silk thread bangles,earrings, pendant and necklace. First, I made bangles, it came out awesome.
Then I bought some more colors of silk threads and other materials like stone lace, beads and all to make make a Silk thread necklace. For the first time I tried an easy design and it came out beautiful. In this instructable I am sharing the step by step methods involved in making the Silk Thread Necklace.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- Silk thread
- Stone chain or Stone lace
- Stone ball /any available beads
- Jump rings
- Lobster clasp
- Fabric glue
Needle to sew
- Other than this you can use any pendants.
- Can use Jump rings and lobster clasp from old unused chains.
Step 2: Start Cutting Threads
- First with a thread or something, take measurement of neck
- Take silk thread of your favourite color (here I have taken Red) and roll it around a scale, measure out to required length and use scissors to cut your silk line.
- You may need 45 or 50 layers of thread in each line.
- Use glue to stick intial ends of thread and let it dry.
- Join the glued three ends and stick it in a scale with a tape, by this when u knot it won't slip way.
- Start braiding the thread as shown in the image.
- Keep braiding till the length you need and glue both ends and cut the extras.
- Stick a stone at the center and Stick a stone lace along the sides using fabric glue.
- Stitch the stone lace along the sides of bride at backside, so that the stone won't come off.
