    Really nice ideas for working in the Patricia Healey! This would make for something with a desert feel.

    This is how I picture the Grand Canyon in my mind. I love the impression jasper with the Greek Pueblo beads. I need to keep it in mind if what I have ordered to go with the Greek Pueblo beads doesn’t trip my trigger on creating.

    This is really pretty! I haven’t used any of the dyed silk ribbons to make anything and this pick really inspires me to try. Does anyone have any advice before I start?

    Oh, I missed this yesterday. Oh, well. Thanks, everyone.
    Jogi, I’ve used the raw edge silk a few ways. It’s too light to use on its own, say behind the neck, but can be woven thru links of a chain, or 2, 3 or 4 longer lengths can be halved over thru a large closed jump ring and the 4, 6 or 8 strands braided in a flat weave to make a soft band to go behind the neck, attaching your bead strands to the ring. I’ve also embellished a 10mm bead strand strung on softflex or beadalon wire by knotting the silk ribbon between each bead and carrying the ribbon along the sides of the beads, twisting the knots this way and that to move the side loops of ribbon out of line, leaving a short tail of raw ribbon hanging at each end. The silk knots also keep the larger beads from clicking together. You can really even just tie short 1.5″-2″ pieces in around your strand for a few fluttering tags.
    They are bias cut, so with wear the edges will roughen up a bit and show their threads. But unlike the sari ribbon, these will not shed long threads of silk at the edges.

Add your thoughts!
