Mono dot necklace

So I've been digging through my ebad and ribbon stash again and came across these fab dotty beads I bought years ago in Lebeado that I'd totally forgotten about! After a little rummaging looking for bits and bobs that complimented the dotty beads I came up with this necklace...
..this necklace is proof that the tiny little ribbon scraps I keep do in fact have a purpose ( I know I'm not the only person who keeps all the scraps of ribbon/fabric regardless of how small they are lol)
The main white ribbon was originally what tied my dressing gown in a bundle when I bought it and the black & white ball beads are from a bracelet that broke forever ago that I was determined would become something one day.
