Ribbon Bar Links


About this design:

So I'm back to finding more ways to use the sari silk ribbon, this time making bar bead links. Experimenting with the finish on them. The ones on the left have a coat of Mod Podge, the ones on the right have nothing. I think I'm partial to these as they look more like the real ribbon, softer look. Just a bit concerned about durability.The glass beads are some I'll be using with the finished beads. Bracelet? Necklace? Earrings? All three?

    These are great and have unless possiblities! I love the idea and the colors, and depending on how they are used they might not need any coating.

    oops, I guess I need my eyes checked, endless is the correct word, but it replaces unless in the original comment. :D

    beautiful colors! I’d turn a pair or these links into earrings, w/ a coordinating briolet or crystal teardrop dangling from the lower loop…

    wow, these are way cool. I would love to see the directions, maybe you can sell the directions. I have never seen these before. I kinda like them without the coating.
