B'Sues Sari Ribbon Blog Hop!

Well here I am again I must be a sucker for punishment lol. I have no experience with sari ribbon, so you might say why am I doing a Sari Ribbon Blog Hop! I was sent two lengths of sari ribbon from my partner in Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party, so when I got B'Sues interesting and informative newsletter she mentioned she was going to be doing said blog hop I just thought 'well why not' so here I am with two pieces of jewellery a bracelet/necklace depending on where you tie it and a necklace.

First off the bracelet/necklace I took the lovely clay oak leaf added two toning lampwork beads I had and threaded them on the red and gold sari ribbon, it can be tied at any length and looks interesting I think one could even add a few more beads to it! I originally made this one for the bead soup but thought you might like to see it too.

The necklace, is green sari ribbon but has a tiny gold thread running through it, I had no idea what to make with it and tried several combinations out not good at all, then I remembered a strand of large pale gold graduated beads that look like wood or seeds they are amazing they threaded onto the ribbon and stay in place without knotting you just tie a bow where you want at the side and are ready to go, simple but I think very effective!


Please do go and take a look at the other blogs in this hop there are some amazing designs out there, here is the link to B' sue where you will find all the link to participants.

You are absolutely right -- simple but effective. Sometimes less is truly more and it certainly is in this case. I especially like the leaf necklace!

I like how you let the ribbon be what it is and it contrasts with those big pearlie beads so well.

Such beautiful and simple designs. The first is my favorite. The leaf is just gorgeous. I love that it can be worn as a bracelet or as a necklace. Wonderful!

I really like the piece with the leaf because I think the texture of the ribbon matches the texture of the leaf. It just makes me think about those wrinkled, crunchy (but vibrant) piles of leaves.

Lori Anderson, Pretty Things said...

I'm particularly fond of the leaf!

FryeStyle said...

Lovely bold and modern pieces! I like!

Catherine said...
