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:

Thank you for looking and for all your lovely comments :-)
