I had a men's gold link necklace kicking around from a family box of castoffs. It looks to be from those 'necklace by the foot' rolls you see in every mall at those center aisle kiosks. I thought I could probably do something with it so I kept it around.
I originally saw this post on cheetah is the new black and thought aha, I know what I can do with the gold chain necklace I have.
And, this is how the idea was applied:
I started off with a bundle of embroidery floss and doubled it up two times to have four full strands. I then tied off the end to the large open loop and proceeded to weave the thread through each link with a loop stitch technique.

I was very happy with the finished product and thought that the orange could be swapped out anytime for another color if I tired of it. But, for now it adds just the right touch to many outfits!
