This braided necklace is a reinterpretation of Victorian hairwork braiding. 5 colors of 20/2 mercerized cotton braided into luxurious cords and then enhanced with silver plated jewelry findings to create a one of a kind necklace. The 20/2 mercerized cotton yarn is both shiny and strong, and comes in a variety of colors, and makes an interesting substitute for hair in this necklace. In addition to Giovanna’s original gray ombre, we have 4 additional suggestions, or choose your own colors from the 20/2 mercerized colors in the Tubular Spectrum Yarn line.
