Jewelry

A While back a good friend gave me this piece of glass that she had created. I tried several beaded straps to make a necklace and even a leather one, but none seemed right. Then I remembered seeing ribbons used in a book on necklaces. Of course then I couldn't find the book and had to just try things until I liked the result.  This has two painted ribbons and a rattail cord. I knotted a regular closure on the ribbon.

I'm taking Christen Brown's Right Angle Weave class at http://www.joggles.com/ , and made this as the first bracelet. It went quickly.
