Braided Dupioni Silk Necklace Craft

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2010


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.


  • Dupioni silk


  1. Rip dupioni silk into 1-inch-wide strips; 1/2 yard makes 3 necklaces.

  2. 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).

  3. Continue braiding to the desired length (our necklaces are as long as 60 inches), and knot. Knot ends together to make a loop.
