Silk Necklace

Dupioni silk in sherbet shades has a lovely luster.

When you tear the fabric into strips, it frays,

giving this braided necklace a soft, fringed look.
Rip dupioni silk into 2 1/2cm-wide strips; 1/2 metre makes 3 necklaces. Knot ends of 3 strips, and plait. When you get to the end, hand-stitch additional fabric strips onto the first 3 (stagger the new additions if possible to disguise the seams). Continue plaiting to the desired length (our necklaces are as long as 150cm), and knot. Knot ends together to make a loop.
