Who so kindly remembered that I was going to post these pictures and thought she might have missed them.
I'm frustrated of late at my non-ability to take a good reliable picture. I know how to set the white balance, I understand exposure and depth of field, I try to sort out pleasing composition and yet still I'm not happy with the result.
So I was waiting for a slot of time since I'm really enamored with this piece and wanted to do it justice. I'm only moderately happy with the result. Sigh....But here it is.
I love that it's reversible and I love the shibori ribbon which means I can tie it at any length I happen to want on that day. Sometimes it looks best short, peeking out of a neckline and at other times I wear it long. Sometimes button side out and sometimes filligree side out.
Blanche from Beads by Blanche used the same button this fall when I was there teaching the Rising Sun. I'm not sure of her exact colors, but I used Pacific Opal and Light Colorado Topaz ab, with some gold lined seed beads. Blanche was also the source for the Shibori girl ribbon which she had sewn into tubes.
I added some beaded bead tips and a bail and I'm pretty darn happy with the result.
