About this design:

This is the first time I have used the Sari Silk ribbon. It took me awhile, but I finally got it the way I wanted it!

Components:

Sari silk ribbon, Irish waxed linen cord and tangerine recycled glass beads...all from LB. Also, too many to mention individually-- assorted glass and metal beads, gold twisted connectors and antique gold chain and toggle clasp.

    Good for you! I’ve been fiddling with the stuff and getting nowhere. Your silk looks like corn husks to me, and the whole necklace is perfect for fall.

    What a clever way to use the Sari. I have some in blue but haven’t done much with it. This is a great design and your colors are awesome!

    BEAUTIFUL! Full of Autumn and . . . yes Indian corn and husks, and even leaves that haven’t turned yet. What an inspirational autumn design. I want to copy this, at least somewhat. Would go with nearly every color of the rainbow, too. DROOLING!!!!!

    I wanted to comment on this as its so lovely but I guess I got distracted. Your strands of beads along with the Sari is awesome. You certainly did an excellent job with your first time with the ribbon. Great job.
