designed by Cynthia Kimura
Skill LevelBeginner
TechniqueSilk Ribbons & Wraps
Time1-3 hours
Approximate Size44 Inches

This piece was inspired by a design I saw with all kinds of ribbon, dangles, crystals, and chain dangling below a heart. I used even more silk ribbon as the foundation of this variation on that look.

Ribbon creates the perfect color palette for this sweet bohemian style. Silk ribbon with beautiful blue hues starts the necklace, while green ribbon dangles dress up the heart focal. Swarovski bicones in matching colors complete this lovely design. You can see more ideas for using ribbons in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
