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.


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.
