Ribbons and Flowers

About this design:

I love the silk ribbons I get from LB and when I saw that I had these floral lampwork beads, the rest just fell into place. I love the simple and soft beauty of these colors and the silk ribbon has all of them muting into one another. I also made a bracelet and earrings and I no more listed this set than it was gone. That is always a good feeling to actually have favorites sell, but then there is a sort of "good bye" when I ship them out. This set affected me like that. I will put up a pic of the bracelet because it was so much fun to make. This set just seems to say spring, beauty, romance, etc to me. Always good things in my book!

    This is so gorgeous. Absolutly stunning, and the bracelet too!

    I havent ventured into using the silk ribbons as “clasps”; just doesn’t occur to me when I am designing. I reach for the leather lacing though. Maybe if I bought some…! ha!

    You are in my neck of the woods, if the Columbus you mention in your profile is Ohio’s capital! I am near Dayton OH.
