My Perfect Creation

It's true, it's really happened. Gathering ideas from Tatertots and Jello (which everyone should follow, by the way), I have created this necklace:


Mostly because it has more meaning to me than just something that I made. I used vintage fabric from my Grossmutti, who was a professional seamstress in Germany. I remembered her sewing stuff out of this fabric, and was excited to find some remnants at my mom's house. I also used a vintage button I found, probably from my Grossmutti too. I left the fabric completely uncoated or sealed to preserve the colors and let the texture of the fabric show.

Here's what I used:

Glitter label tag
Vintage fabric
Vintage rhinestone button
Jewelry chain, spring rings, and jump ring
Silver floral wire
Loose pearls and glass beads
Single loose rhinestone
E600 glue

And here's some other stuff I've been working on!

More label tag necklaces, inspired by Tatertots and Jello:
