Rosette Rosary

You may recall that I made this fabric rosette bib necklace for my mother for Christmas. Unfortunately, the mesh ribbon I used for the actual necklace part was too “itchy”. Note to self: use satin or chain link. This is important to remember in the event that you ever decide to make your own. Needless to say, this necklace has sat on my craft table for 6 months now awaiting a new chain. Saturday is Mom’s birthday. So what’s the gift that keeps on giving? You guessed it…a new and improved fabric bib rosette necklace!

I went shopping in my jewelry box for some ribbon or a strand that could serve as a new chain. The good news is, I uncovered the perfect solution. The bad news is, my selection just so happened to be a strand of rosary beads.

I am not now nor have I ever been Catholic, therefore, how a set of rosary beads ended up in my jewelry box is a complete mystery. I even considered not using them for fear that it was somehow sacrilegious, but they just…worked. If you are Catholic, I sincerely hope you’re not offended. If you are, well… I hope you’ll forgive for me.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

La Vie En Rosettes- part deux

I got a little carried away with making fabric rosettes this holiday season, but, overall, I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.

I had some fabric left over from Amelia’s bedding, and voila! I made this Black Satin Pin Dot Rosette Bib Necklace for my mother. Almost every piece of clothing she owns is black and white, so I added a little color to liven things up. Love you, Mom!

I went shopping in my jewelry box and pulled out any partner-less earrings, stray beads, outdated strands, and unwearable baubles and simply recycled them. I gave this necklace to my sister. I love the look of pearls and denim. So feminine. That’s why I call this piece the Fedenim Rosette Bib Necklace . Ha!

Fabric rosettes are all the rage right now. You can purchase either of these necklaces thru my Etsy shop…
