When Aubree from Yellow Blackbird came across a ribbon and drop pearl necklace by designer Lanvin on the Nordstrom’s website, she instantly loved its color and elegant style.  Even if she’d had the cash on hand to buy the designer version (Lanvin necklaces go for $1,000 or more) they were out of stock…  So she decided to try her hand at recreating it!  The trick to this design is in the cutting and sealing of the ribbon ends, giving them a look that reminds me of flower petals.  What could be more perfect for your summer wardrobe?  [how to make a designer-inspired pearl and ribbon necklace]
