Sari Ribbon party Blog Hop Today !! Friday 14th October 2011

Today is the day where all participants of the Sari  Ribbon Party Blog Hop unleash their creations for the world to see! Please visit as many Blogs (listed below) to see what everyone came up with and leave your comments :)
 The criteria was - make a piece of  jewellery- but it must incorporate sari ribbon in the design. Sari ribbon is the gorgeous jewel-like coloured remnants  from the Indian factories where sari silks are  woven. I love the eclectic mix of colours and the  distressed edging to it.

 Here is what I made: Frozen Charlotte pendant on sari ribbon and  doubl link brass chain. I am afraid I rushed to make her , so I may well add more- I thought maybe some large blue crystals interpersed along the chain . I LOVED the electric blue colour  on this piece of ribbon and the eyelash fringing. Frozen Charlotte  dolly moulded in polymer  clay , with brass wings  set on  a Black Onyx Round. Brass snowflake stamping as a nod to her demise!

Frozen Charlotte- now at peace -warm at last !

Thanks as ever to Brenda Sue for organising this event and for being inspiring on a daily basis!

I also  made these Indian Summer  Bracelets, sari ribbon, brass wire and Carnelian in fab autumn shades (Have 2 sets available one in larger size 8.5" wrist size)
