B'Sue Sari Ribbon Blog Hop



Brenda Sue, of B'Sue Boutique, is hosting a blog hop today! We were to use sari ribbon to create a piece of jewelry. As usual, time got away from me and I left it to Thursday night to complete. However, sometimes that works for me. I used a really gorgeous handmade chain I had purchased quite a while ago from Lynn Davis and red and orange chalcedony faceted rondelles. The sari ribbon has red and orange colors in it and I think it goes pretty well! I had fun making this piece - don't know if I'll keep it this way or not. It's a little big for me (I have unusually small wrists!) and I think I might play with the design a little someday when time doesn't get away from me! Here's a list of all the other participants - check their blogs out, if you get a chance, to see what they made with sari ribbon!

Oh Sue, I just love the color of the Sari. The beads you chose go with it wonderfully. Great job!

ruth said...

It is a great bracelet, I love it and the colors work great together.

Alice said...

A beautiful piece! I hope you keepi it just like this.

I've never used silk or ribbon of any kind in my jewelry because I can't seem to get it to look right. You make it look so easy!

B'sue said...

Great idea, Sue! I love the sari with the chain....how handsome is THAT chain! I'm so glad you found time for our hop. This is B'sue Boutiques first hop and I was so thrilled to have over FORTY particpants, first time out. Please remember to come and post your photo at the B'sue Boutiques Creative Group at Flickr. Joining is fun, fast, free and easy...and we have a lovely little community there. Starting next month the goal is to have monthly challenges. It is SO AMAZING to see the process in so many hands. THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN!

Sue, we used similar ribbon! I too have oddly small wrists...must be a beadmakers thing...hehe.

Lizscraps said...

unique bracelet design. I like the mixe of beads and ribbon :)

oteabykate said...

The bracelet is a really simple, yet elegant design. Love the chain!

oteabykate said...

Lovely entry! Really like the use of the chain with the Sari ribbon!

Pam Chesbro said...

Wow, that handmade chain is super with the sari ribbon. Good job!

DaviniaDesign said...

Gorgeous bracelet.
Your timing seemed right for this project!

Shel said...

It's gorgeous - and I think the colors look amazing! Great job

Firefly Visions said...

I love this design. Like you, I have very small wrists and sometimes it is hard to incorporate the textures that I like without looking like my wrist has been swallowed up by something. There is definite possibilities with this piece in altering the size and the colors are fantastic!!

SoulsFireDesigns said...

That is really pretty! I like the asymmetry and I can see what you mean about the stones picking up colors in the ribbon! Love it!

Vee said...

Love your piece...your ribbon choice reminds me of the colors leaves take on and your choice of beads remind me of pumpkins in the fall...very fall looking! ;o)

Therese's Treasures said...

Sue, that is a beautiful bracelet I love how the Chalcedony faceted rondelles bring out the colors in the silk ribbon and the chain goes well with the design.

Nice bracelet. Beautiful chain and beads. Have fun hopping. I know I am.

JLYNNJEWELS said...

Beautiful design Brenda - I love how you used the hammered links with the ribbon :) ~J-Lynn

JLYNNJEWELS said...

Sorry - meant to say SUE - Brenda is on my mind ;) - and may I add that I love the color combo too!
~J-Lynn

Cynthia Wainscott said...

Good job!!!!! What a cute design!

TesoriTrovati said...

Great color, Miss Sue! I love those links as well. I completed a piece and used one of those enameled leaves you recently sent me. Soon I will reveal!
Enjoy the day!

Charlene said...

This is just gorgeous! I would have never put those colors together and they work just beautifully!

Harry's Handmade Jewelry Ideas said...

I enjoy the simplicity of your piece..not too fussy and shows off the ribbon well.

Green Shoot Jewellery Designs said...

I really like this design, very unusual.

uptwnsh said...

Anything with big links makes me happy! Nice use of the ribbon!

pinkchapeau said...

Lovely bracelet. The handmade chain is the perfect way to highlight the soft textures of the ribbon. The color choice of beads is perfect, too!

M said...

The beads with the sari ribbon are just beautiful. Simple and clean. LOVE it!

Clarity Of PurpleSage said...

Sue-A very light and simple design- works well with the Sari Ribbon-I am big on mixing metal with fiber-Well done! I missed the hop because of my father's passing-hope you get a chance to visit me

Michelle Mach said...

Love the use of silver--you really don't see much of that anymore and it does make a great contrast to the ribbon.

I have made more than one bracelet that's too big for me, so I can totally sympathize!

FryeStyle said...

If it's too large, you could always add some overhand knots to the sari ribbon to shorten the length. That handmade chain is cool!

Cathie Carroll said...

Stunning!
I rarely use silver but I think I need to start. The colors are gorgeous.
