Question How do you finish off your bottlecap necklace?

Hello everyone

I am making bottlecap ribbon necklaces for a kids sale coming up in April and I bought instructions thinking it was going to have this great way of finishing off the ribbon ... aaaaand it didn't.

This is my first time doing/selling this, so maybe you guys would know better than me about this. Do parents mind that you have to tie the ribbon necklace on? I was trying to figure out a way to add clasps rather than tieing.

Also, any idea where I could find that "ball chain" chain stuff?? LOL Does it come in pre-cut lengths or do you do it yourself. I'm really new to this, can you tell???

Thanks for any help.

Tabitha

If you have a good craft store that carries jewelry making supplies they should have some ribbon end clasps...or search ribbon end clasps on ebay. I even used some of the ones that came on some of the ribbon/cord necklaces that I bought when i wanted to switch out colors/prints ribbon with a necklace. Otherwise there is usually some people who are willing to part with some ballchains if you just ask . And as far as buying ball chain by the length...don't go that way its like spending waaay more than you have to.
Hope that helps. take care. -MM

There are tons of places on etsy that you can order ballchain necklaces and everythng to you need to make the necklaces. thats where I got mine. As far the ends to finish necklaces, I got mine at Joanns, HL, Michaels, anywhere. Probably even WalMart?!

I get three pieces of ribbon. I use the 1/4" and 3/6". I get the ribbon clamps at AC Moores or Michaels and that is how I do mine!
But there are allot of good sellers on etsy that have the ball chains!

Julie, is 1/4" the size of the crimp/clasp or is that the size of the ribbon. I KNEW there had to be a better way of securing the necklace besides tying them ... thank you . And where in Michaels did you find them ... in the jewelry/bead section?
