About this design:
Luscious orchid silk ribbon provides an interesting design and adds lots of texture when creatively knotted. With Radiant Orchid being Pantone's Color the Year, you'll find this trendy hue popping up every where this year. This quick and easy project can be whipped up in 15 minutes or less!
Components:Heart Pendant (Humblebeads), 2 12mm brass jump rings, 5 Czech glass flowers (Dream Girl Beads), 5 1" brass headpins, 1 Butterfly button (Natural Touch), 2 30" lengths of sari silk ribbon
Attach both jump rings to the pendant. On a headpin string a flower bead, create a simple loop. Repeat 4 times. String the 5 flower dangles on the top jump ring.
Fold the 2 lengths of ribbon in half, thread through the front of the top jump ring, pull the four ends through the loop of the ribbon, pull ribbons tight.
On one side of the ribbon strands, tie 3 knots with the two ribbons. Pull the ribbon to firmly to straighten out the knots. Leave a 1" gap, then make another knot with the two ribbons. Tie three knots and repeat the pattern until the desired length.
At the end of the ribbon, tie on the butterfly button with two tight knots. Trim the ribbon.
Repeat the pattern on the other side of the necklace. At the end tie a knot with a gap large enough for the button to slide through. Trim the ribbon. Play around with this idea, do a whole necklace of knots or do 5 knots between each open loops. Try two different colors of ribbon.
