Sari Silk Challenge

My local bead store had a challenge.  We had to use Sari silk ribbon and beads to make something.  I forgot to take a picture of the skein before I started, but here is my finished piece.  I did a cuff with my Mirrix loom.

I used C-lon for the warps, Czech fire polished 4mm crystals, and a button from my stash.  It's backed with Nicole's bead backing so it will hold it's shape, and ultrasuede.  I did the edging in Toho size 11 seed beads.  I really like the way it turned out!  The sari ribbon was a little wide to weave with, and at the beginning I thought about ripping it out and cutting it in half.  I'm glad I kept it, although I may try another one with the ribbon cut in half. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my blog!  Please check out the Glass Onion Facebook page if you'd like to see some of the other projects.
