My sister made me the greatest necklace for Christmas. I had been admiring hers for a few months, and lo and behold I got my own! I love the choker version on her, but me... I just kept fiddling with it every time I wore it.
Eating dinner - fiddle, fiddle. Folding laundry - scratch, scratch. Watching a movie - adjust, adjust. I guess I'm just not a choker kind of girl. So, I re-did it into a longer version.
I used the same silk ribbons, just attached them a different way. I added a few jump rings to make one of the frames a bit longer. Before it was a lariat; now it ties around my neck in pendant fashion. I can also change out the cord. I wore it the other day with a gray knit cord. I have plenty of knit cords to choose from nowadays.
For those who are wondering where in the world to get the frames, she got them at Michaels. A new line they are carrying. So far I have not been able to find them at my Michael's, but I'm keeping my eye out for them.
