Reclaimed Sari Ribbon and Other Co-Stars

Last Monday was my first of many posts about the Reclaimed Sari Ribbon I received as a bonus from Nicole at Darn Good Yarn.  To read last week's post, see the direct link to this particular ribbon or check out Darn Good Yarn's other goodies, click on the numerous highlighted links in the first sentence :-) 

Last week,  I used sea glass with the Sari Ribbon.  This week, I paired a lovely Blue Reclaimed Sari Ribbon with deerskin cord, orange agate rounds, and tubular mesh metallic ribbon.  My intent was to make a triple wrap braided bracelet (finished off with a donut agate and a loop, a la button style) and I did, but when I was taking the picture, I realized it could be worn as a necklace too.  I prefer it as a bracelet, but that's just me :-)

The ribbon is soft and very easy to undo if I do something wrong.  It knots well and holds strong, but thankfully, I can unknot when I need to without cutting the ribbon.  There is lovely color variation in these 5 yard color packets, which adds to the beauty of the jewelry.  I have expressed before how I have had difficulty in the past embracing fiber in my jewelry but I can honestly say, each item I have made with this ribbon has been made with a smiling heart and light hands :-)

And now, the Bracelet (or necklace, if you prefer):

Not sure why my skin is photographing purple, but the color of the bracelet is true, so no worries there! 
I would love to see what you might do with some Darn Good Yarn!

Thanks Nicole~I am having a lot of fun with this!

Very pretty! I do like the agate used here.


Loving that casual, hippie vibe! I like this one as a necklace. P.S. Your skin is rosy, not purple :)

This is beautiful! I love the color combo. Great idea making a length that can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace! I agree with Janice that your skin is rosy. :) Cameras can be funny.

Okay...while reading your text, all I saw was the picture of the bracelet WHICH I LOVE...but then I saw the picture of the necklace and that is AWESOME! I love them both! Your chosen colors in this creation are perfection!

I love the combination of the colors. It is so attractive to look at. I choose both of them because they all look great. Just perfect for my dress. :)
