Ribbon and Pearl Ruffle Necklace

What you will need: 
-1"x36" ribbon, satin or polyester,  $1.99
-Strand of faux pearls, $3.50
-Needle and thread, on hand

1. First, pull out your ribbon until you hit about 18". This is where you will tie and knot and start stringing on the pearls. 

2. String on a random number of pearls, 2, 3, or 4.
  
3. Create a 90 degree angle with the ribbon and hold it between your fingers. Pull the needle through, and then string on a few more pearls
  
 4. Make a trapezoid shape each time you fold. (Fold 90 angles is opposing directions around pearls).
  
 5. Your necklace will start to look something like this...
  
 6. At each end you will tie two knots to give the necklace a finished look. Tie a bow to keep the necklace on your neck! That's it!!

  12. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.
