More the Merrier Re-design

About this design:

I decided to use the original ribbon, after taking some advice ( thanks Gail L.!!) and stringing on some large-hole silver beads onto the ribbon. I also added glass leaves, lucite flowers and other assorted bead dangles. I like it---but who knows?..I might add or subtract more before its all over with LOL The pic of the original design appears below.


Silver plated chain, tons of assorted glass and stone beads, glass leaves, lucite flowers, headpins, jump rings, silver-plated large-hole beads and ribbon.

    Looks pretty cool. I saw Gail’s tip to add beads to the ribbon & went “duh, why didn’t I think of that??”

    This is super cute! Didn’t see the original, but I like the beads on the ribbon because it ties in with the silver in the “garden” below. Love all the flowers. I have a mess of bellflowers that need to be used in a piece like this!!! :)

    Wow it is amazing the difference the beads on the cord made. But really what makes the redo outstanding is all those flowers. They really brought it all together.
