I was running low on the Tibet Jewels Sari Ribbon and ordered more. Nicole asked if she could throw in a new product for me to have fun with. Being a One Trick Sari Pony made me hesitant. I really cannot make those luscious fibers work for me in any other way other than the wrap, but I said yes.
And now my challenge begins.
For the next several Mondays, and maybe during a few upcoming hops, I will be posting how I used the Reclaimed Sari Ribbon Nicole shared with me. I have no delusions that many will be paired with rocks, but there are a few that will be used in other ways too. Nicole has given me a really sweet opportunity to expand my thoughts as to what to do with her ribbon.
To find out how Darn Good Yarn came to be and the business ethics they uphold, please click here. It is best to read it from the source itself rather than have me paraphrase. But it is all recycled and Earth friendly, hand spun and dyed by women in Nepal, who are earning a living for their families.
This First Monday not only features the Reclaimed Sari Ribbon Nicole sent me, but it also features some Maine Sea Glass Cynthia gave me. Darn Good Yarn is based out of Maine so this was the perfect piece to kick off the Sari Mondays :-D I also used brass swivels I got in the fishing department the last time I was at Cabela's. A little drilling and ~~Voila~~ this happened:
The Sari Ribbon has me throwing away the tailored look and go for something more soulful and tattered and soft and beautiful. The Sari Ribbon and the glass were both reclaimed and given a chance to shine. Pretty Darn Cool :-D
A Big Thanks to Nicole from Darn Good Yarn
and to Cynthia :-)
