This necklace was originally made with a soft leather cord. A customer on Etsy sent me a message asking if I could make it with something other than the leather cord. So, I tried using 100% nylon ribbon cord, which wouldn't go through the beads. Then I thought "what about ribbon?".
I made the necklace with ribbon and thought it looked cheezy! So I took some white nylon ribbon cord and did some macrame. What a difference it made. I was very happy with how it turned out. It's pretty yet soft and feminine.
