Tanya picked six of us and sent each of us a piece of the ribbon. She also had four others that already had some ribbon join the challenge. I received a 9-inch piece that was a deep steel blue with highlights of lime, a pinky-lavender, and aqua.
Shibori is a silk ribbon with accordion like folds running down the length of the ribbon. You can stretch it (width wise) or scrunch it or both.
My design went through several re-designs as it was not working out how I wanted. I first tried threading it through chain and that did not go too bad.
But I did not like the way it looked when I put it on with the two links of chain showing.
I went looking for a tutorial I remembered seeing that I thought was for a bracelet using the ribbon in that way.
I found the tutorial and it was not what I thought it was for. So I changed the design for my project.
I decided to keep it fairly simple. I wire-wrapped the ribbon ends and added a bead to make a wrapped loop to add chain to.
One of my bowling teammates has just returned from Arizona and brought me back a cactus pendant that I added to the ribbon to make a necklace.
