Reclaimed Sari Ribbon and Handmade Polymer Beads



A few weeks back, I won a giveaway at  Carefree Jewelry by Lisa.    Thanks Lisa!    Click here to read about how this giveaway came to be, and links to where you can find other pieces similar to this brooch, which was handmade by women in Africa.  Lisa won the brooch, made the polymer beads herself to make the lariat, then hosted her own giveaway to pass along the brooch, lariat and extra polymer beads.  








I took some of Lisa's polymer beads and paired them with  polymer beads I got from Erin of Elysian Studios .  These teal Gypsy Trade Beads can be found at Elysian Art A La Carte.   



Then I added a little bit of  the beautiful Reclaimed Sari Ribbon I was gifted by Nicole of Darn Good Yarn .


And here is what I made for another Sari Monday :-)

Thanks Lisa, Nicole, and Erin!
And thanks to you for stopping by :-)  Have a great week!

I love the richness the sari silk gives to the yellows, and then balanced with aqua ... gorgeous color combo! and so pretty how you lightly accent the piece with the silk and not let it over take it! really beautiful, earthy, tribal feel to this one - which of course I LOVE

I love the colors in this bracelet! They're so vibrant and the sari silk fits in perfectly!

Reading about the progression from one to the next and seeing the time put in makes these all the more special. Beautiful pieces ♥

I LOVE this -- so exotic, spicy almost; it really could be worn with a sari! You're so good at bohemian chic :)

I am feeling the warm summer vibe! These are beautiful pieces! The color is so bright and juicy- and that flower focal is awesome! (I am partial to the bracelet though :-) )
