Braided Dupioni Silk Necklace Craft

- Rip dupioni silk into 1-inch-wide strips; 1/2 yard makes 3 necklaces.
- Knot ends of 3 strips, and braid. 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 braiding to the desired length (our necklaces are as long as 60 inches), and knot. Knot ends together to make a loop.
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.
