You can get creative with fibers and fabrics in your jewelry projects. Cheri used various ribbon and cord styles to create fun tassels for her earrings. She even added in beads dangling from Griffin silk bead cord for just a hint of sparkle. You can see more ideas for adding fabrics and fibers into your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe Episode.
