Connections Necklace

About this design:

I was inspired by the connectors and beads as connectors that I have seen in other designs. I used some jasper beads and glass beads to make my own and then used my favorite--ribbon to attach them. I think the purple and green soften the darker beads a little.


ribbon, Kambaba Jasper, serpentine jasper, glass beads, crystal beads, metal spacers, eye pins

    Thanks Quute Jewelry (awesome screen/designer name btw)!

    I use all sorts of ribbon and other materials in my designs. You probably have seen some of them, but if you look on my design pages you’ll see some of my other creations. I like working with ribbon because it’s so lightweight and versatile.
