Crafty Ribbons Inspiration Ribbon and Pearl Necklace

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a necklace I made for the Crafty Ribbons Inspiration blog :-)
For this project you need some ribbon (I used some ribbon from the Jam pot ribbons in Blueberry here) beads (I used inexpensive pearl beads), jewellery thread, some fabric glue and jewellery findings. I sewed on the pearls and used a running stitch along the ribbon so when the thread was pulled tight you get the interesting folds in between the pearls. I then finished my beading by knotting the end of the thread then hiding this with another fold of ribbon which I glued with fabric glue to ensure it was strong. I used ribbon clamps at the end of my ribbon then attached jump rings and a fastener. 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
