Lay the ironed lace flat and adjust the shape a little more. Then, cut the edges off with the sharp pointed scissors around the perimeter of the pattern you want. If there are thin threaded lines, like the one above, you can decide to leave which ones intact without compromising the sturdiness.
Add the chains on both sides and then, ta dah!
I used whatever chain I had in my drawer for this tutorial so it’s a clumsier than I’d like, but you can imagine all kinds of beads you can add to embellish your necklace. What’s great is that the lace this came from has more patterns to make matching earrings and bracelets.
Oh, the possibilities.
