Lace Bowknot Necklace

What you will need:

fabric stiffener

lace, about 15cm in length

chain, 2 x 20cm and a 8cm bigger chain for adjuster

4 jumprings

1 clasp

gold nail polish

flat-nose pliers, round-nose pliers and wire cutters

Instructions:

1) Tie a bow with the lace. Trim the excess if necessary.

2) Spray the fabric stiffener until the bow is wet. Lay the bow on a kitchen paper and microwave it until it is dry (mine took about 40 seconds). Repeat the step until the bow is stiff enough for your liking (I sprayed twice).

3) Paint the bow with nail polish. Do not forget to paint the back as well!

4) Leave to dry.

5) Using jumprings, attach a clasp to a chain, and adjuster chain to the other chain.

6) Attach the end of chain to the bow using a jumpring.

7) Attach another chain to the other side of the bow.

8) It is optional, but I like adding a bead to the end of the adjuster.
