Sari Ribbon Blog Hop

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.

I know, are you shocked, I made earrings… Simple, two vintage pearls, sari ribbon and some twists of wire. br />

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 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!

  39. If both of these investments increase in value by 10% you will have only a
    10% return on your stock money and a 50% return on the money you invested in real estate.
    There are several commercial lenders that continue to take advantage of the severe lack of business loan choices
    for purchasing, building and refinancing a golf course or funeral home.
    The financial statement also records what the sources of
    the assets were. And now, these institutions are not only being called on to actually underwrite their loans (which
    was part of the problem in the first place with stated income loans, etc), but to do so in a grand scale
    which means taking a hit where it counts: their balance sheets.
    According to horary astrology if you want to know about share business,
    it can be seen through 5th and 2nd house of the person’s kundli to see profit and
    loss in the business.
