I saw something similar on Pinterest and decided to try my hand. I used a length of écru cotton lace backed with bias tape. I then sewed on the glass pearl beads and covered the sewing side with more bias tape. I think perhaps, in hindsight, a brass finding to close it might have been nicer than the silver tone one. It has a sort of Victorian look and if done really well would be an excellent piece to wear with an ivory wedding gown or velvet formal dress.
