My new addiction - Ribbon Jewellery. My pal Sassie made me a necklace for Easter and I fell in love with it - and my daughter bought me a basic kit for my Birthday a couple of days ago. Here are the first results of my playing:
This is made from the kit using both beads,
This is it with just the green bead
and now with just the purple bead
and then I made a bracelet with ribbon from my stash and a large bead
and then I tried two different ribbons, and added tiny bead to the end of the tie.
another view of the two bracelets.
Sassie and I have had a lovely few days, and spent yesterday afternoon, after a fab Chinese meal at our local restaurant, at a little craft shop at the local garden centre, buying a few bead making bits, and this morning we nipped across to Hobbycraft as she doesn't have one near her - and erm spent rather a few more pennies on jewellery bits!
I had asked for a bead loom for my Birthday too, and I had really wanted the more expensive one from Beader's Companion ( which I could also have paint-fusioned!|) - anyway we saw the smaller one in Hobbycraft so I decided to buy that and put my savings towards more beads, etc. instead!
Sassie has now departed for home in the wilds of Devon, Boo Hoo - so I shall now go and sit in the garden and try out my loom!
Thanks for dropping by. (and don't forget if you want a ribbon necklace, let me know and what colour .......!)
