Friendship Necklace

What's better suited for Palentine's than the gift of friendship?

From the Gorgon's secret lab comes a brand new fashion trend this season. A piece of jewelry that won't just adorn your outfit but also carries a special meaning. You envied it on Andre, you saw Kei rock it with style - and now Friendship Necklace manifested itself in that barren wasteland outside the tatters (aka real life).


Materials
- synthetic velvet
- velcro fastener
- pink embroidery floss
- reddish crochet yarn
- yellow wool
- brass chain
- small brass charms

Treat your favorite Kith, or that one special person you know. Doesn't even require a sewing machine, just a needle, some thread and leftover fabric. You can even use actual currency for charms if you happen to live in one of these countries where some coins have holes. Be creative. Get wild. Unique quest rewards make for unique gifts.

I decided to put the charm coins halfway on the necklace instead of below for better contrast (and since they make the handcrafted piece quite bottom heavy from the start, it provides some additional stability without distorting the fabric too much).

Were I to craft the item again, I would probably choose black denim or a snakeskin patterned leatherette as the base material instead and search for charms that look a bit more three dimensional and have a slight oval shape. But I do like my result, plus it was great fun ...for the most part (I'm looking at you, fraying edge of velvet that almost broke my needle!)

Finished craft pictures:

Hope you enjoyed the show! Stay tuned for the next edition of "Tattered Weave Alive" when Gorgon's secret lab will bring you Piper's hair bow. Oh. And persimmons permissions to use it on social media if you like. Friendship blossoms when shared. Just like kindness, creativity, and world domination plans.

Thank you!

Chains are mandatory ^^ nearly everything can be improved with a bit more metal anyway.

It is. I made the velvet a double layer, so it would feel more like a scarf than a restrictive collar. Friendship keeps you warm in winter.

Any real life item for that matter. I think it's quite interesting how virtual clothes and accessories look like when actually crafted. It's also a lot of fun.

Thank you ^^
Personally in real life I have this pet peeve with anything close around the neck (that includes turtleneck sweaters), so I wanted to make sure from the start it is comfortable to wear and not too restrictive.
