SILK SARI RIBBON JEWELRY

AT THE LAST FLEA MARKET I DID AT KANE, ONE OF MY NEIGHBORS WAS SELLING HANKS OF SILK SARI RIBBON. THE COLORS AND TEXTURES STOPPED ME IN MY TRACKS! THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL, SO I BOUGHT A FEW. SOME OF THE THINGS I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON WITH THIS RIBBON ARE BROACHES AND A COUPLE OF CHOKERS. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS, BUT FOR NOW THIS IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.

And what you came up with stopped me in my tracks!! I had to scroll up and down a few times just to enjoy the photos of your flower brooches even more!! They are STUNNING!! And trully unique, one of a kind items, made from some very unusual ribbons. I had never heard of them, but I am sure that had I been to the market they would have stopped this silk-ribbon loving gal in her tracks too. Take care, Debby
