Rosette Necklace Features Delicate Fabric BloomsMake a statement with this fabric, chain, and ribbon necklace.
This rosette necklace tutorial includes step-by-step instructions on hand sewing round fabric circles, and incorporating chains, encased sequins, and ribbon.
Crushed panné won’t fray so it’s easy to sew, and chiffon adds a bit of texture to the piece. Make the entire necklace from one color, or choose several coordinating colors for a more dramatic look.
Create the rosettes by gathering a fabric circle around a sequin. Sequins were used to add a bit of sparkle to the sheer chiffon pieces. You can also use beads to create the center; just make sure your fabric circles are large enough to gather behind the bead to cover it entirely.
