Jewellery made using ribbon!

I love ribbon and therefore have a good collection of it, in fact less than a week ago I found some ribbon on sale at a local craft shop and bought a load of new rolls. I also stumbled across a new idea whilst looking in a boutique shop window, necklaces made with round beads and ribbon and I think they look awesome. So here is a simple one I made that goes with everything and is worn frequently.


Here is a close-up shot so you can see the ribbon.

Happy New Year! And here is a bauble

Happy New Year and welcome to 2011!

Normally I don’t make New Years resolution but I have decided to do one which I will share with you, to post at least 200 posts in 2011. In 2010 I set a goal of a post a week and smashed it by doing a total of 103 posts.

Here is a bauble I made quite a few weeks ago. It is hand beaded and made following the instructions in a book by the spellbound bead co, which my great friend Jane bought me. I love this book and the projects even though they do take a while to make.
