Reclaimed Sari Ribbon with Lampwork

This post is right smack in the middle of the busiest 2 weeks of our Spring so I am keeping it relatively short and simple.  And I also want to let you know that I will get back to you on all the comments you have left over the past few posts.  It may take me a week or so to get a response out, but I will, I promise.  The e-mailing is my favorite part of blogging! 

Here is this week's Reclaimed Sari Ribbon necklace:

The Lampwork Bead comes from the hands of 2 Bead Sisters.   I don't use lampwork beads too often and never really know what to do with them.  Yet every time I see these ladies at a show, I spend half my budget at their table.  I cannot resist them!
Nicole from Darn Good Yarn sent me the ribbon to work with and see what I could come up with.  This week, I did some tearing.  It tears easily when I want it to.  It doesn't seem to want to tear on its own at all, but to get the tears where I wanted them to be and how I wanted them to look, it was very compliant.  Good Ribbon.  I wish all things in my life listened to me like you did ;-)

If you missed what I made Week One or Week Two, go take a look.
Thanks for stopping by and thank you Nicole!

More hippie chic! This one is very laid back and beachy :)

The orange color is luscious -- which is something I would never have said a few years ago, because orange was one of those *scary* colors for me to work with. Love how you let it play the major role, with just the pops of lampwork to chill it out a little bit!

Lovely Christine as always. I have a bowl of lampwork beads and just adore the colors. They really make me happy! Have fun this week. Oh yes, the sari is a wonderful color addition. Glad you are finding some good use for it.

It looks like you know what to do with lampwork beads now Christine! This is such a simple, pretty design that really shows of the bead.
