The jewelry designer Lamprini makes these amazing collar necklaces that are crotchet together with chain, crystals and beads. The details used in each piece is beautiful.  They  sale for between 200-500 bucks!!!  So I will just have to admirer them from a far unless someone would like to gift one to me LOL!  If your like me and can’t afford the price on the ticket, let’s make a similar one together. Check out the tutorial below!

Cut a long piece of your thin ribbon. Lay both of your short chains side by side then tie and knot them together with your ribbon.

Next it’s time to add your large chain. First cut and knot all your ribbon and string.  Take a little super glue and place in the middle of your knots and around the edges of your ribbon to prevent unrevealing.  Then take your large jump rings and attach your large chain to each side.

Now measure your necklace around your neck to get your desired length. Then use some pliers to take shorten chain by taking out links.  Then attach your clasp with a jump ring to the end of your chain.
