Hand dyed silk ribbons

I'm starting to experiment with "Layered Flora" beads.  I bought these gorgeous silk ribbons from the gals at at Bead Fest Santa Fe a few months ago.  The centers will most likely be different from what is shown on these...I've even toyed with the idea of embedded turquoise cabs for the centers, but then I would have to up the price and now might not be the time to do that.

I love that you can tie these on any number of ways...and almost anywhere...neck, wrist, hair...I so love it!

Many of you know that I struggle with jewelry designing so I hope these go over well with my customers this summer at the ACRE show and at the New Mexico Arts and Crafts Fair.

Here is one of my new banners for this year so if you see it hanging in a booth somewhere, you've found me!
