Sari Ribbon Party Blog Hop
Thank You Brenda from B’SueBoutiques.com for hosting this blog hop. I wanted to start by sharing with you what Sari Ribbon is… and where you can get it. B’Sue boutiques stocks it here.
It is fun to play with and there are a ton of uses for it. I bought mine shortly before Brenda announced the blog hop. I am so thankful I decided to participate in the blog hop, because I often create with more neutral colors in my jewelry and this blog hop challenged me to step into the world of color. Now as I post my photos, the colors are not showing as dynamic as they are in real life!
Sari Ribbon from B’Sue: Made in textile mills in India, these are remnants of old sari material, cut down in narrow strips and then tied or sewn together. They are frayed, tattered, skinny, wide…and completely wonderful! We offer you a 30 *foot* length, neatly curled into a ball. Within that ball you well may find earthtones, brilliant jewel tones, pastels….the colors of the rainbow, literally. Is what it is, there is no choice over color or type….and content? Well, I can’t entirely say….some of the ‘ribbon’ is cottony, some silky, some is coarse. For sure you’ll find something to love and use to good advantage!
Here is the necklace I created with Sari Ribbon. I used the gorgeous jewel tone ribbon to create the necklace. I wired my own hook clasp and incorporated the vintage pearls that I used in the pendant to add interest to the clasp. I also added some of the sari ribbon into the actual pendant as well.
And a cuff… I started with a fabulous cuff (also from B’Sue), I wrapped wire around the base of the cuff and started twirling the wire around the vintage elements and jewel toned crystals and completed the look to match the collection.
And a better view of the front…
And a totally different style, my take on the popular wrap bracelet. I took smaller crystals, 28 Gauge wire, leather & Sari… I wrapped many feet of wire & crystals around the leather & ribbon! Fun & easy!
And here is another view with my daughter modeling for me. 🙂
