Sari Ribbon Blog Party

Well the time has arrived to reveal our sari ribbon creations......

I was so excited about making something with this beautiful sari ribbon.  I could not wait to get started.

Talk about a messy work space!
 Let me just say that this was so much more difficult than I ever thought it would be.  I had all these ideas in my head and just did not know where to begin.
Well I decided that I wanted to make a layered sort of necklace. So the first thing I did was braid some of the sari ribbon and wrap it around some chain.  I then worked on adding some beads and some sort of focal piece.
I ended up with a multi-layered asymetrical necklace.

Here are a few more pics of parts of the necklace.

I love the small strand of beads.  Wish I had loads more of those.

Once I was done I decided that I should do a bracelet too.
This was really very easy and I love the organic look of it.

Although this was very challenging for me I did enjoy the process.  I only wish that I had more time. 

Here is the list of all the participants in the Sari Ribbon Blog Party.  Please visit all thier blogs and see the lovely creations....I can't wait!

  11. Both pieces are spectacular! My favorite is the bracelet and I am intrigued by the bracelet base.

  14. Love the necklace, the layers are wonderful!

  15. Both are nice. The bracelet is really fascinating with all the color and texture

  16. Really trying hard to leave a comment on your blog but my computer doesn't like your blog for some reason. Loved the "balance" of the is just perfect. Interesting bracelet base. How did you do that? Great pieces showing off your talent.

  17. I am so amazed by these two pieces! The necklace I would wear and the bracelet! Nicely done!

  18. I would really love to comment to individuals but can not seem to figure out exactly how to do that?!?! Frustrating.

    THANK YOU all for all the wonderful comments. As to those that are interested in my bracelet it was soooo easy you! I purchased the wire form (wish I could say I made it :) )from my local bead store
    and just wound the sari ribbon between the rows. I used two very different colors of the ribbon for the multi-color effect. I was going to add some beads but decided I liked the simple look. Thanks again, this has been so much fun. I can't wait to participate in my next blog hop/challange.

  19. Loved both pieces and would wear either one in a heartbeat.

  21. Wow! If you are a beginner, I want to begin again! The necklace is beautiful, but the bracelet really stunned me, so pretty!

  22. Both beautiful pieces. Love the graceful neckline of the necklace, and the bracelet is just fun! Great job!

  23. Thanks for visiting my blog, Nice necklace and the bracelet is amazing the added ribbon makes a plain bracelet really special!

  24. The necklace is both pretty and colourful, but I must say the bracelet is my fave. Love the look of the ribbon wrapped and woven around the metal. Great job!
