Vintage Tablecloth to Necklace

This is my welcome spring necklace!
I really need some floral inspiration right now.  I am still surrounded by mountains of snow and a grey sky.
This is the gorgeous piece of linen I am recycling into wearable art.  I cut around the stains and save as much of the hand embroidery as possible.
On the weekend I finally organized all my vintage linens into one area.  I can enjoy my collection everyday now, and not just when I open the box they used to be stored in.
I will really enjoy wearing this necklace!

Love the necklace. I have so many vintage linens and doilies that I need ideas! Thanks for sharing!

Carmi, is there a post showing how you did this gorgeous necklace? I have a box of handkerchiefs embroidered by my (now deceased) sister as a young girl. I would love to be able to use and display them like this.

Way cool necklace. I could use some spring flowers too.
