DIY : 'Songket' Necklace and Bracelet

Songket! I don't know why I was so infatuated with the fabric pattern on this one. I found it when I was unpacking my mom wardrobe about a year ago, and  finally a few weeks ago, it could be sewn by my aunt to made into a skirt. So i am really excited for it :D

Yeah, this Songket is originally from my hometown, West Sumatera (Minangkabau), Indonesia. 
A bit about Songket, It's a kind of woven traditional Malay and Minangkabau in Indonesia, and other countries such as Malaysia and Brunei. It usually woven by hand with gold and silver threads. and did you know? to create an exclusive songket cloth takes about three months, and for ordinary songket only takes about three days.Wow! and previously, the only royal family who has it, and it usually worn when there are custom ceremonies. So no wonder I called it 'Songket' is Exceptional Heritage.
Currently, when had been discovered synthetic gold thread, the price becomes more varied, ranging from the expensive to the affordable. And now the Songkets are not only for the the royal family, but also can be worn for all of us :D

Songket is usually made ​​into a skirt, but for DIY, I will make it something different. Necklace and bracelet!
