Chinese Writing Stone

About this design:

I wanted to make something with ribbon. Since the Chinese Writing Stone is not a true black, it was hard to match it up with other white or black stones. I think the creme color ribbon looks okay with it. Not sure if I like the ribbon as a necklace/choker though.


Chinese Writing stone twisted rice, flat ovals, sterling silver rounds on earrings, lobster claw clasp on bracelet, wire on necklace. Silver plated chain. Creme color ribbon. All from LB except for the ribbon.

    Beeeyuutiful! I like the use of ribbon (wear it wherever you want it) and love the chain you’ve added. It really lifts this set to being something quite special.
