Sunflower


About this design:

I've had this chain with ribbon on a tray for months, probably since February. I had also made the flowers with the teardrops at the same time. And it all sat there because nothing worked. And then grouping 3 popped in my head last night. Today I put it together.

This section of the sari silk ribbon has a lovely brocade pattern. Sorry the photos are blurry...rainy day.

Components:

Czech sunflower teardrops. Citris facetes rondells. Gold sari silk. (LB) Brass chain. Coconut shell spacera. Bronze bicones. Brown seed beads. Brass headpins.

    Another uniquely beautiful piece. I have Sari ribbon and haven’t found a use for it yet; maybe I will come up w/one after seeing this.

    Love that ribbon and the flowers are awesome! The whole piece looks rather antique-ish which is one of my favorite looks.
