Cotton Roving Necklace

What do you do while waiting for King of the Hill to come on? You make a necklace.

Pretty simple, I just wrapped some cotton embroidery floss around the roving in tight segments, using the same technique as you would when making a coiled basket, and tuck the end of the floss back under to finish it off. Simple chain without any clasps, I have no specific jewelry making tools or even a needle nose pliars so that part was a little more interesting (scissors work pretty well for spreading apart links..). I like this one, but I can already see a huge amount of variations happening.

The funny thing is I almost never wear jewelry.
