just a quick post to show you a couple of new pieces. when i began them i had in my mind’s eye what i wanted-almost. lots of what i do is like that. i have it about 80% worked out in my head. the last 20% comes as i am working on it. i learned a lot making them.
i’m looking forward to making more of these in other colors. that will have to wait for mid november though. i’m adding these to the shop as shown and you can order the make me one option and we can talk about colors.
just wanted to show off Kate’s bead on some silk shibori ribbon hanging simply on some shibori ribbon. At one time Kate did shibori but now mostly makes jewelry and keeps a blog coincidentally named Shibori Girl! Here’s a link to one of her beads in her etsy shop
i frayed the edges a bit.
you can easily alter the length of the ribbon and get fancy by adding some hardware. silk just feels good on your neck all by it self though.
