Sari Monday





Darn Good Yarn Reclaimed Sari Ribbon woven through ladder stitched bracelets.  I ruffled the heck out of them with all those little seed beads.  The Bug squeals every time she sees them and has also requested I make a few without the sari~just leave the ladder open.  So~I will be doing that...and maybe teaching her how to do it too :-)

On the black & red one with the blue & red sari, those red beads came from Cynthia.  They were part of a mix she gave me.  I wasn't sure if they would ever make it into a project but they begged to be in this one.  The beads come to us for a reason...even if we don't know it right away.

yes they do! those beads speak!! I am loving this series, and I can see why the Bug squeals ... these look so soft and lovely to have around the wrist!

I like that you changed up the closure on each one. The copper is such a nice twist on your first design, and I agree - I'd love to see this worked up as an open design, that would be cool too!

Those are fabulous! I love the look of the sari woven between the beads. The ruffles are a great touch!

I bet these are soft...these are amazing! the deep green in the first one...the Emerald Green-is my favorite!I have been looking at my fast-growing stash of beads that I have acquired lately, and there is alot of green sitting there! these are fantastic designs, and as usual, I am in awe of not only your bead weaving, but your colors leave me swooning!

Cute idea - what a great way to incorporate sari ribbon into bracelets!

Beautiful bracelets Christine and a great way to show of the beautiful Sari silk. I love the first one it would be a good one to wear during the Christmas season. I too would like to see what this design would look like without the Sari silk.
