BTW: Creating with Ribbon


On my table this week are the remains of the package that I received from Nina Designs. You can see the full loot here, but this week I'm focused to a few necklace designs.

I'm starting off this week's necklace series with a pretty pendant that I wire wrapped in a variety of Swarovski beads: bicones, a couple of squat bicones and a cube. I have lots of these pink beads in my stash as my oldest daughter has always favored the color pink. So I regularly pull them out when I'm creating a piece for her.

I also used a beautiful magenta silk ribbon (from Nina Designs) to connect the necklace and to kick up the color of the piece. As a final accent I used a pretty swirl toggle, a handmade gold chain I created with a few more pink Swarovski beads and a few spacers from Nina Designs. I had my daughter try it on when I was done, and it looked so pretty on her. Now if only I could get her to wear a dress!

That is so great. I will have to make something comparable or copy it out right... hahahaha. It is very pretty and would be fun to have as a bracelet, too.

Love it! Pretty pinks! I got a kick out of your comment about your daughter not wanting to wear a dress. I was the same way! Finally in high school I started wearing skirts and became more girly over time!
