spring flowered necklace DIY


the inspiration: Dior necklace 
what do you need? 
artificial flowers
gros grain in various colors (i used white,baby pink and purple)
pink satin ribbon

avrete bisogno di:
fiori in stoffa
gros grain in vari colori
un nastrino di raso per il fiocco
pull  out the plastic pistil
estraete il pistillo in plastica,basterà tirare
sew the petals together and cover the hole left by the pistil with some beads
ricomponete il fiore cucendo i petali uno sopra l'altro e usate qualche perlina per coprire il foro del pistillo
 stitch the white gros grain without blocking the thread at the end
eseguite una cucitura sul gros grain bianco senza bloccare il filo
and gently pull the thread, you'll see some ripple will form
tirate poi il filo e noterete che il nastro si arriccerà

stitch the white gros grain over the pink one
cucite il nostro bianco sopra quello rosa

now stitch the purple gros grain as shown and then press the pleats down with the iron.
I've finished the necklace stitching a row of silver beads between the pleats and then i've added a long satin ribbon at the back of the necklace, you'll fasten the necklace with a fancy bow.

a questo punto cucite il nastro viola come mostrato in figura e poi schiacchiatelo con il ferro da stiro in una direzione ottenendo delle pieghe. Ho completato la collana aggiungendo delle perline argentate tra le pieghe e un nastro di raso sul retro della collana che rifinisce e serve ad allacciare la collana con un fiocchetto.

It was fun to make and it's an example on how flowers are so decorative on their own!
