It doesn't get much easier to make necklaces than sliding tube beads onto silk ribbon! I love how these tube beads have cut-out designs for the ribbon to peek through.

One of the simplest ways you can use silk ribbon is to make it a foundation for necklace designs. You can slide on a favorite focal bead and it's ready to wear. The length is adjustable because you can tie the ends and it will make a colorful accent for your style. This technique is so easy, Cynthia made two examples with tube beads. You can see more ideas for using ribbons in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
