Necklace with Removable Rosette

 For this necklace, I used two packages of 5/16 flat washers and some black velvet ribbon.


I weave the ribbon in and out of the washer so that they lay slightly on top of each other.  When I am finished, I added end caps and clasps to the end just like I would on a regular necklace.


For the clip, I used turquoise ribbon and made it into a flower rosette.  Then I used some black material and made a circle and glued the rosette on the top. I added a clip to the back.  The clip becomes very versatile because it can be used on the necklace, as a hair clip, or as a broach.  

Here are the supplies I used for the Broach:





A special thanks to my daughter for modeling for me!  :)  Here is a close-up side view of the clip:



Here is the same necklace with a singed flower broach.  I have a tutorial on my blog RIGHT HERE if you want to know a little bit about making this type of flower.



Have fun creating!  :)  I am LINKING UP HERE and  
Go show them some love and check them out.  You will be glad you did :)
