Sweater Flower and Pearl necklace

I wanted a “wintery” necklace. So I created this Sweater Flower and Pearl necklace. I love the chunky sweater texture paired with the smooth, elegant pearls. I think it’s a great combo.And the ribbon adds the sophisticated touch that I wanted.
I bought a sweater at a thrift store and cut it apart to make the flower. Then added some ribbon and pearls, and there you go.
