I am a Bead Addict and I make Lampwork beads 🙂
I also collect Hand Dyed Silk Ribbons.
I have to be very firm with myself and don’t allow myself to make much in the way of Jewelry and the only Jewelry making supplies I have on hand are Hand Dyed Silk Ribbons in my secret stash.
Every now and again I make a set of Beads that just totally enthrall me, like this set which went so well with some wonderful Black Silk Ribbon I bought from an Artist in Germany.
So here we have a set of 7 Lampwork Beads simply strung on Black Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon, the beads are held in place on the Ribbon with 2 black rubber Stopper Rings.
The Ribbon is 1 meter long which is just over a yard as has tapered ends so one can choose the length one wants to wear it.
So simple, understated and elegant 🙂
