Pearls with Ribbon

I had a short trip to Munich three days ago. In order to make my train ride less boring, I took some glass pearls and ribbons with me and DIYed a new necklace (the bling bling part came from an old bracelet, how I wish I had more of these pretty little things). If you love the mix of pearls and ribbon but hate the price tag at Lanvin, why not just start DIYing now. :-D

We’ll fly to Paris next week, I hope to share with you some beautiful winter pictures of the city of light next time!

    Admire you to death! By the way, I always thought you live in France…Well nobody actually told me anything. I always dream of taking a trip on the train cross Europe someday.

    Beautiful DIY with a little twist: the bracelet gives it such a personality! Question: how did you attach the pearls to the ribbon?
    I wish I took more train rides in Europe. Have fun in Paris!

    It is a very good idea to do something fun like what you did on a train trip… Hmm, maybe I should do the same thing… I’m planning a train trip to Beijing, so hopefully I can turn it into quality time like you did… :P

    Thank you very much gals, I am back! :-)

    streetwithnoname, it’s really not a big deal. I am sure you can DIY it too. BTW, I am in Germany. Living in France would be a dream.

    Elysium, it was so nice to meet you. Thank you for taking your time and showing us around. Hope we can meet in Summer again!

    jibjab, the pearls are sewed on the ribbon. If you need detailed instruction, just drop me a line. I can take some pictures next time.

    june, 谢谢你。欢迎有空常来小座!


    shaonian, we hope to fly to Beijing in September. Have fun DIYing and I wish you a wonderful time in Beijing!

    Even though I know he’s more being polite I’m happy to hear that :D.

    jibjab, there you go (detail1 and detail2). You just have to bend the ribbon again and again and put a pearl in it every time.
