Hand-Dyed Silk Sunflower Blend Ribbon
I used this ribbon as well as some of the other colors available to enhance the photo pendants I made from photographs of flowers in my yard. The blend of colors in the ribbons are beautiful. I used cord ends and added a clasp to all the necklaces I made using this ribbon. I cut the ribbon shorter, down to 25 inches for my necklaces.
Though the ribbon is beautiful on its own, I was really disappointed in the color. My ribbon has a single 2-inch section near one end that could be called a "yellow," but it's darker and greener than the yellows in the photo. The rest of the ribbon is dark olive and a fairly dark brown. The autumn-orange undertone of the photo is missing. I gave the appearance a low rating because the colors are so far "off." I wouldn't recommend this to someone expecting a "sunflower" appearance.
Lost in the Garden is a Hit!
I made the "Lost in the Garden" pendant with this ribbon and then didn't want to sell it because I loved the colors and the design. So, I made another one for myself! Everyone liked the colors in this sunflower blend--they truly are gorgeous.
These silk ribbons are wonderful...the colors are beautiful, the ribbons are high quality and my customers love them. We use them for necklaces and love the ability to control the lengh of the necklace.
