Shibori Ribbon

I first saw this beautiful silk ribbon at the Grove in San Diego, brought in by my friend JudiPatuti. Shortly after in Miami, my host Myriam was wearing a beaded button pendant suspended from the ribbon.

I stitched this gold one into a tube, brick stitched a little bail, encrusted it with volcano sequins and make peyote end caps. A loop and margarita complete the design and I love it.



This is one of the pieces that will be for sale at Saturday night's Walkabout in South Park. It is a rare day when I sell what I make, and there's more....bracelets, earrings and few more felted bauble necklaces.

Ooooo....that's gorgeous, Marcia. I'm sure you'll do excellently as people must stand in line to buy your babies.
